Abstract

Semantic Event Tracker (SET) is a highly interactive visualization tool for tracking and associating activities (events) in a spatially and Multimedia Enriched Virtual Environment. SET provides integrated views of information spaces while providing overview and detail to improve perception and evaluation of complex scenarios. We model an event as an object that describes an action and its location, time, and relations to other objects. Real world event information is extracted from Internet sources, then stored and processed using Semantic Web technologies that enable us to discover semantic associations between events. We use RDF graphs to represent semantic metadata and ontologies. SET is capable of visualizing as well as navigating through the event data in all three aspects of space, time and theme.
