With the rise of various technologies, there is now a vast amount of (complex) spatiotemporal information that can be useful in different contexts of high societal relevance. Phenomena such as climate change, globalization or smart cities all heavily depend on large amounts of such data for understanding them and for deciding how to best deal with them.
Prof. Christian Kray from University of Münster gave a guest talk about the Immersive Video Environment (IVE) – a tool to support design, visualisation and evaluation of spatiotemporal phenomena. Presentation discussed the use of realistic panoramic video footage as an alternative way to communicate spatiotemporal information for non-experts. Prof. Kray, using several examples, illustrated how the IVE works, how content can be created and how it can be used for a variety of purposes.
