A Web-based interactive 3D visualization Tool for geospatial data

Zixiao Shi, William O’Brien, Aly Abdelalim

Abstract: This project created a computer information visualization tool designed for displaying building operation data. The design goal is to improve the user’s efficiency of monitoring building performance with the available building information. This tool was formalized based on the existing computer information visualization theories. This tool is capable of displaying a large high-dimension dataset within a single workspace. Interactions were also extensively implemented to encourage epistemic actions and information discovery. A university campus was used for demonstration in this project.¹
