Abstract

Mapping how things move through space is a significant challenge. Creating workable cartographic representations that can meaningfully display particularities of movement and also aid the investigation of the patterns and different processes of mobilities has stretched mapping practice and is, in many respects, still an unresolved challenge for cartographers, information designers and visualisation programmers. Producing aesthetically pleasing and analytically useful maps of spaces of mobility has become one of the key research frontiers in cartography and geovisualisation (Andrienko et al. 2008; Dodge et al. 2009; Dykes and Mountain 2003).
