Web-based Data Visualization
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this report is to describe the process of creating web-based data visualization aimed at data collected from maritime operations. The work focuses visualizing data in interactive graphs and illustrations. In addition, map and videos were implemented in order to enhance the understanding of the numeric data. These elements can give a better view of the ship's conditions and surroundings. All of the components are being synchronized and controlled by a common timeline. Data was stored in a MySQL database. The server-side language PHP was used for retrieving and providing the correct data for the different visualization elements. The finished application is meant as a prototype for illustrating some of the possibilities for data visualization on the web. The idea is that Ulstein and the ONSITE-project can find inspiration from the application, and use it in further developements.
