    Description: In recent years, the amount of environmental data that is measured, collected and analysed has risen in staggering amounts. Developing effective visualisation techniques is the key to improving the understanding of complex data sets and communicate findings to the public in general and stakeholders in particular.

    Description: We present a framework that allows users to apply a number of strategies to view and modify a wide range of environmental data sets for the modelling of natural phenomena. These data sets can be concurrently visualised to find inconsistencies or artefacts. This ensures at an early stage that models set up for the simulation of hydrological or thermal processes will not give implausible results due to complications based on input data. A number of generally applicable visualisation techniques are provided by our framework to help researchers detect potential problems. We also propose a number of mapping algorithms for the integration of multiple data sets to resolve some of the most common issues. Techniques for the presentation of input- and modelling data in combination with simulation results are proposed with respect to the benefits of visualisation of environmental data within specialised environments. The complete workflow from input data to presentation is demonstrated based on a case study in Central Germany. We identify typical problems, propose approaches for a suitable data integration for this case study and compare results of the original and modified data sets.

    Description: Over the course of hydrological research projects often a large number of heterogeneous data sets are acquired from sources as diverse as boreholes, gauging stations or satellite imagery. This data then need to be integrated into models for the simulation of hydrological processes. We propose a framework for exploration of geoscientific data and visually guided preparation of such models. Data sets from a large number of sources can be imported, combined and validated to avoid potential problems due to artefacts or inconsistencies between data sets in a subsequent simulation. Boundary conditions and domain discretisations for surface and subsurface models can be created and tested regarding criteria indicating possible numerical instabilities. All data sets including simulation results can be integrated into a user-controlled 3D scene and aspects of the data can be enhanced using a number of established visualisation techniques including thresholding and user-defined transfer functions. We present the application of this framework for the preparation of a model for simulation of groundwater flow in a river catchment in southwest Germany investigated in the scope of the WESS project.

    Description: Hydrological research projects for integrated water resources management such as the IWAS initiative often accumulate large amounts of heterogeneous data from different sources. Given the number of partners taking part in such projects, surveying and accessing the available data sets, as well as searching for a defined subset, becomes increasingly difficult. We propose an integrated approach for a system combining visual data management and numerical simulation which allows to survey and select data sets based on keywords such as a region of interest or given indicators. An adequate 3D visualisation of such subsets helps to convey information and significantly supports the assessment of relations between different types of data. Furthermore, the interface between the visual data management system and finite element codes allows for the straightforward integration of information into the numerical simulation process and the subsequent visualisation of simulation results in a geographical context. We demonstrate typical workflows for integration and processing within the system based on data from the IWAS model region in Saudi Arabia and the TERENO Bode Observatory in the Harz Mountains in Germany. In addition, we present examples for data import and export based on established standard file formats.

    Description: For the purpose of analyzing and managing Urban Water Pollution Discharge Systems (UWPDS) comprehensively, a systematic approach of tracking and tracing analyses was developed based on environmental systems analysis theory, in which the directed graph, the nodal flow balance and the network analysis of Geographic Information System (GIS) were used. Based on the digitalized UWPDS of GIS which was established by collecting and processing a large amount of topographic, sewage discharge and drainage data, this scientific approach can be applied to make the tracking and tracing analyses on wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations, illicit sewage outlets, pollution sources and drainage pipelines systematically. The upstream and downstream information about sources, discharging paths, flow quantities and final destinations of pollutants was obtained, and potential problems in the UWPDS analysis such as illicit connections between different drainage pipelines were identified, with the spatial analysis. This developed approach was tested using the UWPDS of Chaohu City (Anhui Province, China). The study results are important for the implementation of sewage interception engineering, the determination of load reduction, and the optimization of drainage pipelines and pumping stations in future.

    Description: In the future, climate change will strongly influence our environment and living conditions. Weather and Climate simulations that predict possible changes produce big data sets. The combination of various variables of climate models with spatial data from different sources helps to identify correlations and to study key processes. In this paper, the results of the Weather Research and Forecasting model are visualized for two regions. For this purpose, a continuous workflow that leads from the integration of heterogeneous raw data to 3D visualizations that can be displayed on a desktop computer or in an interactive virtual reality environment is developed. These easy-to-understand visualizations of complex data are the basis for scientific communication and for the evaluation and verification of models as well as for interdisciplinary discussions of the research results.
