6702.1 - Dynamic Optimization of Phenomena Mapping Application to Urban Heat Wave

Location: Delaware B

Nowadays, urban phenomena such as air quality, noise or heat wave are becoming global issues. There are more and more researches on these phenomena, almost of them are still complex to estimate and to map. In most cases, phenomenon mapping is difficult to understand for non-expert because: 1 – phenomenon is not contextualized or overlaps its context or 2 – the raw data density is not adapted for visualization. For facility of map interpretation, we want to propose methods to improve visual perception by visualizing a phenomenon with its context and at different levels of detail (LoD) and by adjusting data according to view condition (zoom level, context and observer’s position). To do that, we propose a conceptual data model for effective database organization and an optimization process in three steps in the section 2. Then we introduce the implementation of our solution with a study on heat wave in the next section.
