THETIS Project

Vision:


Information management in CZM is promoted through an
open
,
federated system

that facilitates resource sharing while maintaining
operational autonomy

for its members


Objectives:


On
-
line access

using WWW technology


Straightforward
plug
-
in / publishing

capability both for models and
data sets


Efficient search

for data and models via appropriate metadata
descriptions and a distributed search engine


Flexible data integration

using mediation techniques


Dynamic invocation of models

to produce data on demand


Interactive data visualisation

using GIS technology and
VR

THETIS Demonstrator Scenarios


Waste Transport,
for the simulation of pollution point sources

general circulation data, concentration of effluents, transport of pollutants



Tracking of Sea Structures,
for the study of the dynamic of oceans

oceanographic structures




Nearshore and Offshore Waves,
for coastal defences, coastal and offshore
structures, flood prevention, etc


Calculation of the
wave climate

based on
historical wind

and

wave data

CNR Contribution


Embedding of a 3D surface modelling program in the
THETIS system

digital topographic data of coastal areas (i.e. bathymetry,
coast lines, contours, ……) are merged in a suitable
geometric model able to capture the different morphological
shapes of coastal areas



Integration of advanced visualization tools in the
THETIS system

virtual reality techniques offer a transparent and easy
-
to
-
use
support for sharing GUI environments over the WEB

Virtual Reality for Geodata


VR, as a tool for
simulating

the real world rather then for
imitating

it, is
a suitable graphical interface for navigating spatial data and supporting
users in decision
-
making processes or exploratory data analysis



VRML: Virtual Reality Modeling Language


Standard language for representing VR worlds


Support for modelling of geometry
and

interactions


Sharable and platform
-
independent

VRML is a suitable support for building GUI for geodata


Cost effective (generally, VR plug
-
ins are freeware)


Easy to use
