Methods of Data Processing and Communication for a Web-based Wind Flow Visualization

Marc Skutnik, Luigi Lo Iacono, Christian Neuhaus

Abstract

This paper presents methods for the reduction and compression of meteorological data for web-based wind flow visualizations, which are tailored to the flow visualization technique. Flow data sets represent a large amount of data and are therefore not well suited for mobile networks with low data throughput rates and high latency. Using the mechanisms introduced in this paper, an efficient transfer of thinned out and compressed data can be achieved, while keeping the accuracy of the visualized information almost at the same quality level as for the original data.
