More and more people in mega cities are choosing to travel by public transportation due to its convenience and punctuality. It is widely acknowledged that there may be some potential associations between passengers. Their travel behavior may be working together, shopping together, or even some abnormal behaviors, such as stealing or begging. Thus, analyzing association between passengers is very important for management departments. It is very helpful to make operational plans, provide better services to passengers and ensure public transport safety. In order to quickly explore the association between passengers, we propose a multi-view interactive exploration method that provides five interactive views: passenger 3D travel trajectory view, passenger travel time pixel matrix view, passenger origin-destination chord view, passenger travel vehicle bubble chart view and passenger 2D travel trajectory view. It can explore the associated passengers from multiple aspects such as travel trajectory, travel area, travel time, and vehicles used for travel. Using Beijing public transportation data, the experimental results verified that our method can effectively explore the association between passengers and deduce the relationship. View Full-Text
