How to deal with unavoidable projection errors (“wormholes”) in map-based visualizations?
Visualize wormholes through adaptive distortion of the map and facilitate navigation “through wormholes” into distant regions.
- map generation: landmark multidimensional scaling (Landmark MDS)
- map distortion: Adaptive SpringLens technique (grid-based distortion)
- track distance/similarity measure: manually adaptable
- implementation: Java using QT Jambi for visualization
