Abstract

Air quality is listed as one of the world's worst pollution problem, mainly in urban areas where most of the population lived. Air quality Models (AQMs) can give an analysis of the causes which have led to these concentrations of pollutants. The data produced by urban AQM are 3D. Thus, the atmosphere around the studied urban environment is sampled in a volumetric grid, enabling the utilisation of well known volume rendering techniques. This work presents the visualization of 3D datasets resulting of AQM models at city scale, loaded and rendered interactively in a Web application, where different UI controls are used to configure the parameters of the visualization and to navigate through the datasets.
