Recording and analyzing images taken over a long time period (e.g., several months) from a stationary camera could reveal various information regarding the recorded target. However, it is difficult to view such images in their entirety, because the speed at which the images are replayed must be sufficiently slow for the user to comprehend them, and thus it is difficult to obtain valuable information from the images quickly. To address this problem, we have developed a heatmap-based analyzing system. In this paper, we present an experiment conducted using our analyzing system to evaluate the system and identify user processes for analyzing images provided by a stationary camera. Our findings should provide guidance in designing interfaces for the visual analytics of long-term images from stationary cameras.
