TechConnect Innovation Program

Variable Grid Method for Simultaneously Visualizing Spatial Data Trends and Uncertainty

DOE-NETL, PA, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

NETL’s Variable Grid Method (VGM) allows users to identify spatial patterns, trends, and uncertainties in data and interpretations, enabling identification of research biases and knowledge gaps. This highly-adaptable approach can be used to support a variety of research, management, and decision-making needs.

Primary Application Area: IT, Cyber-Security, Software

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The 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 quantify underlying uncertainty.
