Air pollution and meteorology are disciplines where 3D visualization is beginning to become commonplace on the evening news. Earth Volumetric Studioand EnterVol provide the tools to visualize and animate this data in countless new ways to meet any requirement from television weather reports to scientific analysis.
The VADIS simulation data used in this visualization was created by the GEMAC team at the Universidade de Aveiro under the direction of Prof. Carlos Borrego. GEMAC developed VADIS, a true 3D street-canyon model coupling boundary layer flow with Lagrangian dispersion to simulate urban air pollution in city centers. It was specifically targeted at street-canyon pollutant dispersion such as this model of downtown Lisbon, whose air quality problems are largely due to intense traffic
