Rendering and Cognition with Images and Hybrid Visualizations

CALL for PAPERS. Deadline April 15.

GeoVIS: Joint ICA-ISPRS Geovisualization Workshop on

Rendering and Cognition with Images and Hybrid Visualizations

1-2 October 2015, La Grande Motte, Montpellier, France

WebSite :


The main organizer of the Geospatial Week 2015 is the French Mapping Agency (IGN France) and the event will take place in Montpellier, France, from September 28th to October 3rd, 2015 ( The GeoVIS workshop is driven by the members of ICA Commission on Cognitive Visualization and ISPRS Commission on Geovisualization and Virtual Reality. A joint effort by these two commissions brings together geovisualization experts to discuss cognitive as well as technical aspects of geovisualization design. A particular focus of the workshop is rendering and cognition with images and hybrid visualizations. The term hybrid here refers to multiple-linked views, raster/vector overlays, mixed realism displays as in virtual or augmented reality and similar. The program will feature oral presentations and a poster session.

Workshop Topics

With the ubiquity of high resolution sensors, today we face the challenges of dealing with a wide range of heterogeneous data types (e.g., images, 3D models, LIDAR points, raw data, etc.). This data- and information-rich era encourages visual analytics approaches and requires new ideas for visualization design. Currently we witness enthusiasm for images and multiple-linked views in which data can be “co-visualized” for a given purpose (which we call hybrid visualizations). However how effective and efficient images and hybrid visualizations are for decision-making processes is yet to be established. In this framework, we invite you to submit research papers related (but not limited) to the topics listed below:

  • hybrid visualizations of heterogeneous geographical data (imagery, LIDAR data, vector data, 3D models, etc.)
  • hybrid visualizations of user generated data, geovisualization Web 2.0
  • contribution of imagery to efficient visualizations
  • handling visual complexity of information-rich visualizations (e.g. imagery, photo-realistic representations)
  • imagery based decision making and related perceptual and cognitive mechanisms
  • image-based representations, mixed reality representations
  • uncertainty issues with heterogeneous geographical data
  • usability, use and user issues of hybrid visualizations
  • interaction and navigation through heterogeneous data and hybrid visualizations
