Heat Maps Feature Coming Soon!
All Aretas sensors have the ability to support geotagging for sensor readings. Every reading stored in our data center also has a field for geotagging. Even if each data point's geotag is not populated, the sensor location is also stored separately and correlated with the data output. Coupled with timestamp, geo tag (x,y,z) and sensor value, all available dimensions are queryable for analysis and visualization.
Numerous fixed station sensors can be visualized in 2-D, output from moving sensors can be tracked and visualized (in 3-D) and data can be queried geographically.
The next major improvement to the Aretas software is supporting visualization of ground station monitor data (indoor and outdoor) in a heatmap overlay. A sample HeatMap (for example only) is shown below:
Relative concentrations will be visualized this way and will provide users with an instantaneous snapshot of geographic specific concentrations. Problem areas can be spotted easily and there are many creative uses of this data on a large scale basis. For instance, when measuring gas concentrations with numerous fixed stations in an oil storage location, fugitive emissions sources can be triangulated and estimated with greater precision. Cities can use this visualization to identify problem pollution areas or areas that need air quality improvements. Radiation, VOC, CO, NO2 or any pollutant can be used as a metric in the visualization.
