Geo-visual Analytics of Capture Fisheries Statistical Data

Lay Summary 

The goal of this project is to design and develop a geo-visual analytics toolkit for the exploration of capture fisheries statistical data. Geo-visual analytics is a research discipline that deals with developing and studying interactive visual representations of geo-coded data, with the purpose of supporting complex decision making.

Due to the size and complexity of the data sets, data mining and machine learning techniques are employed to automatically condense and reveal interesting patterns or relationships within the data. The visual and interactive representations empower the user to "see" these features in the data, and support them in taking an active role in the exploration and knowledge discovery process.
