5. Possible enhancements

5.4 Improved visualization

The representation of the resources and of the landscape on the visualization media can be ameliorated in many ways. Making iconic or textual representation of some important locations is certainly a way to improve human-understanding. The use of other values to characterize a resources can also make some important locations emerge. As an alternative to the representation of the landscape, displaying the directions of the weight vectors can result in something similar to the representation of the flow of water in a ocean. Having the locations mapped on a globe can provide a more interesting display, giving the possibility to see a better correspondence with the geography of our planet.
