This application was developed for my undergraduate honors thesis and was accepted and published at EUROGRAPHICS 2014. The work was supported partially from an award from U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s VACCINE Center and a grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council UK EPSRC. It received surname input from the user and output a population density map and income distribution for that surname.
I extended previous work that computed a population density heatmap based on a surname. My contributions and results from the project include:
Ibarra Surname Density - Regular Search
Ibarra Surname Density - Probabilistic Search
Kimes Surname Density - Regular Search
