             abstract = "Urbanization is accelerating worldwide, giving rise to serious 
                         traffic problems. Traffic wave, known as stop-and-go traffic or 
                         phantom intersection, is one of the most significant traffic 
                         oscillation patterns studied in Traffic Engineering. Usually these 
                         studies are numerical experiments that investigate specific 
                         places, such as a crossroad or a highway section, and their 
                         findings cannot, therefore, be easily applied to sensing device 
                         data in a systematic computational approach. In this regard, 
                         visual analytics can help by combining automated analysis with 
                         interactive visualization for effective understanding, reasoning, 
                         and decision-making. In this paper, we present a novel approach 
                         for visualizing traffic oscillation patterns by visualizing the 
                         objects' movement in space over time, inspired by vector field 
                         visualization. We propose an algorithm to control and synchronize 
                         the visualization time; a systematic stepwise methodology for 
                         exploring sensing device data; and a visualization tool that 
                         computes the trajectory data in parallel on the GPU at interactive 
                         frame rates. Moreover, our approach is designed to support both 
                         batch-processed and streaming data applications. We also present 
                         the benefits and limitations of our visualization proposal based 
                         on domain expert feedback. Finally, we present performance tests 
                         with very encouraging results to support our approach.",
