I want to analyze data from events in fire protection a create some illustration of maps. In short: my task is to find methods for data visualization. Data are represented by point layer (each event is localized and except the coordinates, each event has some information in attribute table).
Can you tell me some methods I can use (except classic chloropleth map and diagram map)? I analyzed data with kernel density tool, or I have used "count points in polygon" tool from Hawths Analysis tools for creating cartogram maps. I used this tool for Quadrat Analysis too - creating vector grid (polygons) over the extent and counting the events in each polygon (quadrat).
Last method was line diagram map (creating buffer from line data and counting points in each polygon segment of buffer, this information was necessary to visualize events that happened on the roads.
Is there some other method or tool I can use?
Thanks for help
