Geographically ordered glyphs for studying multivariate geographical distributions

This project will investigate glyph-based approaches to the visual depiction of multivariate data across geographical space. It will build on existing work, ideas and data that will help get this project to a good start. The project will involve design, implementation and evaluation and will tackle important theoretical issues in geographical visualisation.

 - Review the multivariate glyph literature.
 - Identify, implement and evaluate different geographical discretisation methods.
 - Identify, implement and evaluate glyphs that are effective for comparison across 2D space.
 - Generate guidelines to facilitate their use.
 - Geographical data
 - Information visualisation
 - Digital prototyping and implementation preferably using JavaScript
 - Evaluation
