TechConnect Innovation Program

Variable Grid Method for Simultaneously Visualizing Spatial Data Trends and Uncertainty

National Energy Technology Laboratory, Pennsylvania, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

NETL’s Variable Grid Method (VGM) allows users to identify patterns and trends associated with spatial data (i.e., characterizing geological formations), along with communicating uncertainty associated with these data and their interpretations, allowing users to identify key knowledge gaps, the need for additional research, or better guide management or policy decisions.

Primary Application Area: IT, Cyber-Security, Software

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The Variable Grid Method (VGM) is an easy to understand approach to simultaneously visualizing spatial data trends and their uncertainty. When integrated with existing or future data visualization programs, it provides a simple and effective way to show and understand data trends and underlying uncertainty.
