On Tuesday, November 7, from 12:00–1:00 pm please join us for the next Spatial Technology Lunch in the Center for Spatial Studies (Phelps Hall 3512). This semi-regular series, hosted by spatial@ucsb, aims to promote discussion and interaction within the university’s spatial technology community. Please RSVP to Crystal Bae (cbae@spatial.ucsb.edu) by Sunday, November 5. Pizza and drinks will be provided.

Spatio-temporal data integration for an integrated approach in the modelling of the city wide energy chain

Alexandru Nichersu

Abstract: With energy simulations of different complexity levels for smart cities and the concurrent IoT revolution we have observed an increase in the demand of spatial awareness for data coming from the energy sector. The measured or simulated data requires interoperability with semantical city models which allows for the quantification of environmental influences by using different spatial algorithms. In the presentation we describe our proposed approach to the integration of this data with both spatial and temporal variation.
