Summary:
The development of geographic information systems (GIS) has changed the way in which geographers are able to visualize and investigate spatial topics. Current research has now shown a need to incorporate the element of time into a GIS for the purpose of better understanding the processes that are related to change. This study investigates two methods of creating spatiotemporal databases, using the evolution of an airline route system as an example. Also discussed are the ways in which a user-friendly interface may be incorporated for easier data exploration.
