Stereoscopic presentation for data analysis is the only available way to get the whole picture at a glance. A typical application is the presentation of the gas leakages over the natural gas distribution network. The measurements are presented on a typical mapping system (e.g. Google Earth). The stereoscopic presentation of the data on the satellite-street map can assist engineers to isolate the critical gas leakages at a glance. Another application presents the oil to water (ppm) content measurement of an Oil Water Separator on a nautical chart. Another application presents the exact position and depth of the underwater communications’ cable. The only way to achieve a more than three dimension(x,y,z, ..) real time diagram is with the use of stereoscopic visualization technology. Applications are endless.
The NM-211GE is a two channel data combiner/filter with 5xRS422 and an RS232 output. The NM-211GE acquires the GPS signal from an integrated GPS sensor at the primary input that triggers the data sampling of the secondary input. Data are then combined into a custom ASCII sentence (e.g. NMEA-0183) and transmitted to a data logging device or system. The triggering of the data sampling can be based on the time/date data that are transmitted from the GPS. The custom output file can contain various information such us time, date, speed, latitude and longitude along with the data sampled from the secondary input.
A typical application of the NM-211GE is the system currently installed in one of the vehicles detecting gas leakages over the natural gas distribution network.
The NM-211GE samples data from the gas measuring device and combines them into an output containing also the longitude, latitude. All transmitted data are then stored in a file and can be used to present the route and the measurement taken at each location in a three axis typical mapping system such as Google Earth .
A Stereoscopic technology can also be used for the presentation of these data on the satellite-street map to assist engineers in isolating the critical gas leakages at a glance.
