Further, some of these new forms of geographic visualizations open up society to a new kind of surveillance, revealing interactions that were previously hidden in unused transactions and databases. The act of visualization itself may constitute an invasion of privacy (Monmonier, 2002). If the appeal of some spaces is their anonymity, then people may object to them being placed under wider scrutiny, even if individuals are unidentifiable.

In Google Earth, imagery constitutes a patchwork base layer, and all other features are superimposed on it. Linear features such as roads and rivers, and point features such as landmarks, present no problem to this approach. However, when area features such as census tracts are coloured by variables such as population density, the result is a layer that obscures all lower layers, including the base mapping. In such cases it is helpful to make overlaid layers partially transparent. It is impossible to determine the location of any feature on the surface of the Earth exactly, since any method of measurement has inherent uncertainties.

It is far too easy to develop tools that merely ignore this type of data. Often missing or erroneous information can help the user infer some fact or it can be used to support a hypothesis. Seminal work in this area is Unwin et al. (1996) in their MANET (Missings Are Now Equally Treated) system. However, current systems still do little to integrate this uncertain data and much work needs to be done here to fully integrate and allow the user to appropriately manipulate missing information. 3 Data processing challenges The sheer size, complexity and diverse nature of geographical datasets definitely have consequences for exploratory analysis.
