Abstract: It is easy to get lost while browsing and navigating spatiotemporal content, and the problem is exacerbated by the exponential growth of geospatial data with mobile phones and tablets. In this paper, we propose a continuous method of transition visualization with zooming and panning interaction of the maps and timelines on touch-based devices that maintains the spatial and temporal context of spatiotemporal content.

Keywords: spatiotemporal content, level-of-detail, zoom and pan, immersive visual interaction
