"Analyzing people, equipment, organizations and their activities over time is increasingly a key concern for command and control. The objective of our research has been to develop a method to capture and visualize the spatial and inter-connectedness of this information over time within a single, highly interactive picture. A novel visualization technique for displaying and tracking events, people, and equipment within a combined temporal and geospatial display has been developed into a demonstratable prototype called GeoTime in order to determine potential utility. The focus of this paper is on land force commanders and staff. However, we believe the concept is applicable to a wide variety of government and business analysis tasks."
