This applet shows different examples of representation mechanisms that can be used to show the answers to location-dependent queries with location-granules. Please, allow some time for the applet to load
(it may take a while). An alternative version for Java Web Start can be found here .
A list of systems and configurations where we have tested the applet can be found here.
In this other applet, we show how the use of location granules can also affect the semantics of the queries.
JVM version above 1.5 required, preferably Sun's Java Virtual Machine.
- The map on the left allows us to move the different reference objects (in this case, buses) by dragging and dropping them.
- The right side of the applet shows us different queries with different representations:
- Density representation: shows the relative density (using colors) depending on the number of
buses in every granule.
- Bus line representation: shows the buses that are in the different granules of two
different bus lines.
- Audible representation: plays a sound whose pitch depends on the distance from
the bus1 object to the granule that represents the Centre french region.
- Every object (blue circle) can be dragged and dropped. The name of the selected bus is
displayed down in the left side of the applet.
