Dynamic data sets where each element of the data has its own individual timestamp have become more prevalent. Algorithms for drawing temporal networks within the space-time cube (2D + t) have been devised to allow dynamic graphs to be visualised in an event-based way. However, three-dimensional representations of non-spatial information are difficult to navigate. Therefore, interactive systems are necessary to fully understand the graph structure and how it evolves over time.
The student will investigate perceptually effective ways of dividing and visualising the space-time cube. The project will start by visualising the contents of this space-time cube with an embedded network drawn with an event-based dynamic graph drawing algorithm. The visualisation methods in this case will focus on visualising the already present structure within the drawing which takes into account both spatial position and time simultaneously. Then, they will explore methods that are able to draw the dynamic graph on demand in the space-time cube steered by the user.

Swansea University is a public research university located in Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom. It was chartered as University College of Swansea in 1920, as the fourth college of the University of Wales. In 1996, it changed its name to the University of Wales Swansea following structural changes within the University of Wales. The title of Swansea University was formally adopted on 1 September 2007 when the University of Wales became a non-membership confederal institution and the former members became universities in their own right.
Swansea University has 8 colleges spread across its two campuses which are located on the coastline of Swansea Bay. The Singleton Park Campus is set on the grounds of Singleton Park to the west of Swansea city centre. The £450 million Bay Campus, which opened in September 2015, is located adjacent to Jersey Marine Beach to the east of Swansea city centre which is in the Neath Port Talbot Area.
It is the third-largest university in Wales in terms of the number of students. It currently offers about 330 undergraduate courses and 120 post-graduate courses to 20,375 undergraduate and postgraduate students.
