Three Geo-Storyline designs showing the geo-temporal evolution of the relationships between people. The two selected people in blue moved together from north to south. (A) Coordinated Views include a map on the left and a unique Storyline timeline on the right. While scrolling, links appear between the relationship nearest to the map and the associated locations. (B) In Map Glyphs each relationship is represented by a map with the associated locations drawn in orange. (C) Time Glyphs are composed by a map on the left and a scrollable list of Storyline glyphs on the right. Each Storyline glyph contains all the relationships associated with one location. Gray lines between a location on the map and a storyline glyph indicate the correspondence between the two.
