Book Chapter published in Student Handbook “Praxishandbuch Forschungsdatenmanagement”

We are glad to announce that our chapter to the student handbook “Praxishandbuch Forschungsdatenmanagement” (Engl.: practice handbook research data management) was accepted and got printed at De Gruyter. Our chapter addresses the foundations of Data Visualization, which is explained on behalf of selected examples.

The book covers nowadays societal research challenges in pespective of data management and how current approaches in research can helo to handle it. Therewith, events such as the entry into force of the code “Guidelines for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice” of the German Research Foundation (DFG) or the establishment of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) put providers, producers and users of research data in front of specialist, technical, legal and organizational challenges. The practical handbook for research data management comprehensively covers all relevant aspects of research data management and the current framework conditions in the data ecosystem.

In particular, the practical implications of data policy and law, the respective data market, data culture, personal qualification, data management and “FAIR” data transfer and reuse are examined. The practical handbook also provides an overview of projects, developments and challenges in Research data management.

Paper #1: Visual Analytics Indicators for Mobility and Transportation

Abstract

Visual Analytics enables a deep analysis of complex and multivariate data by applying machine learning methods and interactive visualization. These complex analyses lead to gain insights and knowledge for a variety of analytics tasks to enable the decision-making process. The enablement of decision-making processes is essential for managing and planning mobility and transportation. These are influenced by a variety of indicators such as new technological developments, ecological and economic changes, political decisions and in particular humans’ mobility behaviour. New technologies will lead to a different mobility behaviour with other constraints. These changes in mobility behaviour require analytical systems to forecast the required information and probably appearing changes. These systems must consider different perspectives and employ multiple indicators. Visual Analytics enable such analytical tasks. We introduce in this paper the main indicators for Visual Analytics for mobility and transportation that are exemplary explained through two case studies.

Paper #2: Innovations in Mobility and Logistics: Assistance of Complex Analytical Processes in Visual Trend Analytics

Abstract

A variety of new technologies and ideas for businesses are arising in the domain of logistics and mobility. It can be differentiated between fundamental new approaches, e.g. central packaging stations or deliveries via drones and minor technological advancements that aim on more ecologically and economic transportation. The need for analytical systems that enable identifying new technologies, innovations, business models etc. and give also the opportunity to rate those in perspective of business relevance is growing. The users’ behavior is commonly investigated in adaptive systems, which is considering the induvial preferences of users, but neglecting often the tasks and goals of the analysis. A process-related supports could assist to solve an analytical task in a more efficient and effective way. We introduce in this paper an approach that enables non-professionals to perform visual trend analysis through an advanced process assistance based on process mining and visual adaptation. This allows generating a process model based on events, which is the baseline for process support feature calculation. These features in form of visual adaptations and the process model enable assisting non-experts in complex analytical tasks.

Paper #3: On Microservice Architecture Based Communication Environment for Cycling Map Developing and Maintenance Simulator

Abstract

Urban transport infrastructure nowadays involves environmentally friendly modes of transport, the most democratic of which is cycling. Citizens will use bicycles if a reasonably designed cycle path scheme will be provided. Cyclists also need to know the characteristics and load of the planned route before the trip. Prediction can be provided by simulation, but it is often necessary to use heterogeneous and distributed models that require a specific communication environment to ensure interaction. The article describes the easy communication environment that is used to provide microservices communication and data exchange in a bicycle route design and maintenance multi-level simulator.
