Abstract: The prevalence of dementia in Singapore, those aged 65 years and above in year 2005 was 22,000. By 2020 it is projected the figure will increase to 53,000 and by 2050 the projected figure will further increase to 187,000 [1]. With the rapid increasing number of dementia patients, many research works were conducted related to trying to understand more about the disease. The project is a continuation of the development of an existing tool used to visualize the travel pattern of dementia patients over a long period of time. The core functionalities of the tool has been developed by two previous students and the objective of the project is to continue making improvements and enhancements of the tool. The project investigates into the existing tool in several aspects such as the UI elements and the architecture. Several improvements were planned and conducted. Two of the main improvements of the tool were made to enable better usability. One is the improved main window of the user interface. The author added resizability to the animation panel and created a timeline window used for assisting user better navigating the data. The other improvement is the inner program logic regarding the animation scheduler. The details are explained in the report. In conclusion, the tool developed aims to assist researchers to find travel patterns from collected patients’ data. With more improvements of the tool, researchers can better utilize the data being collected which may contribute to the study of cure of diseases like dementia.
