2001, p. 17) note, ‘developments in hardware and software have led to (and will continue to stimulate) novel methods for visualizing geospatial data’. For example, data animation can be used to depict trends and patterns by expressing how critical attributes change over key variables such as time and space. Geovisualisation tools can also depict business data using threedimensional visualisations, enabling users to explore data interactively and discover meaningful new patterns quickly. Moreover, animated three-dimensional landscapes take advantage of a human’s ability to navigate in three-dimensional space, recognise patterns, track movement and compare objects of different sizes and colours.
