This is joint work together with Thomas Low and Christian Hentschel who are supervised by Andreas Nürnberger and Harald Sack, respectively. The demo video was created by Thomas Low.
With increasing collection size and complexity of the similarity metric, projection accuracy rapidly degrades and computational costs prevent online map generation.
Create the impression of panning a large (global) map by aligning inexpensive small maps showing local neighborhoods.
- local map generation: multidimensional scaling (MDS)
- map alignment: Procrustes analysis
- backend implementation: Python, Java
- frontend implementation: HTML5 (jQuery)
