Graduate stud, Jennifer Lather, spent her summer working with Dr. Robert Amor in the Department of Computer Science in Auckland, New Zealand. During this time, they explored BIM and BMS sensor data and current visualization systems typically used by managers and operators of buildings.
They were exploring data access and transparency with building occupants and investigated ways to show building operations data to end users of those facilities. She created a pilot interactive data visualization system for viewing building operations data within a 3D environment and explored various levels of data visualization, including building, floor, and room levels. Further research and development into various use cases are currently being explored.
