DS Studio project “3D Radiation Mapping” has been chosen as a runner-up in the 2012 Bentley Student Design Competition in the Unique Ways of Solving a Problem with GIS Technology category.
“Radiation Mapping is the project to predict and visualize the area polluted with radiation. This project’s objectives are to predict the distribution where and how much radiation dust has been piled up and to create as one of tool that we understand safety area easily.
First of all, we use an instrument named Geiger counter for measuring the radiation. And at the same time of recording of radiation levels, we use iPhone app that real-time GPS trackomg service and recorded the movement of the trajectory between the two points that I have walked. This project has two phase.
First phase is modeling geographic information using GPS in generative components. We imported the data from GPS and plotted the trajectory. The way we walked are expressed that tied the points are plotted to the line shape and offset the line. Second phase is visualizing the radiation levels on the terrain modeling has been. It will be able to easily grasp the relationship between radiation levels that remains and terrain by replacing numeric data that measured by Geiger counter at the same time as the measurement of the GPS data.
The superior thing of this tool is the point that anyone can understand the safety area even if you don’t have specialized knowledge. Information, should be known by anyone, should be visualized as can be understand by anyone and we convinced that this design has been achieved it and this is great significance.”
