As the generation of social media, we can instantly express how our day is going; however, unknowingly the weather can play a key role in how we are feeling. The weather may dictate our lives regardless of what may be happening. The relationship between weather and mood has been immensely studied to show that the weather does play a major factor regarding our emotions. However, how we visualize the relationship and influence between weather and human emotions remains an interesting question. Based on the natural correlation between weather and mood, we propose Tweether, a real-time weather and tweet visualization tool, to see how Twitter users feel regarding the weather they experience. Our visualization displays a current reflection of emotions in a set of select geographic regions and also predicts possible emotions in these regions in response to the weather forecast. The visualization uses multiple layers to show the connection between geolocations, weather, and emotions. By aggregating multiple users with emotions, we create an aesthetic design in a 3D manner that is relatively free of visual clutter and it is simple to understand the relationships between weather and emotions.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
