  • From Planning to Gaming: High Performance Geoprocessing and User Experience Robert Cheetham [email_address] @rcheetham
  • Who is Azavea?
    • 25 people
      • - software engineers
      • - geographers
      • - systems analysts
      • - historians
      • - designers
    • Spatial Analysis
    • High Performance Geoprocessing
    • User Experience
    • R&D
  • 10% Research Program Pro Bono Program Time-to-Give-Back Program Employee-focused Culture Projects with Social Value
  • Site Selection Tools
  • Buying a Home
  • Close to Center City  Walk to Grocery Store  Nearby Restaurants  Library  Near a Park  Biking / walking distance from our work  Biking distance to fencing  somewhat important vital very important nice to have somewhat important very important somewhat important Robert’s Rules of Housing
    • Child Care
    • Local School Rankings
    • Farmer's Market
    • PhillyCarShare
    • Public Transit
    Your Factors might include…
    • Tax Incentives
    • Commercial Corridor Health
    • Public Transit
    • Car Share
    • Open Space
    • Farmers’ Markets
    • Street Network Density
    • Recycling Participation
    • Walkability
    Siting Decision Factors
  • Not a new idea … Design with Nature
  • Not a new Idea … Dana Tomlin
  • Desktop GIS
  • x 5 x 2 x 3 x 1 + + + = Generate Output Heat Map
  • Web is different from the Desktop
    • Lots of simultaneous users
    • Stateless environment
    • HTML+JS+CSS
    • Users are less skilled
    • Users are less patient
  • ArcGIS Server
    • Flex, Silverlight and JS API’s
    • Publish tasks and models
    • Caching
    • Optimized MSD files
  • But wait … there’s a problem
    • 10 – 60 second calculation time
    • Multiple simultaneous users …
    • … that are impatient

  • Specific Goals
    • File format – ARG!!
    • Limit range and data type
    • 1D arrays rather than 2D
    • Distributed processing
    • Binary messaging protocol
  • Distributed Geoprocessing
  • Success!!
    • Reduced from 10-30 seconds to
    • <500 milliseconds
  • Success!!
    • Reduced from < 500 milliseconds to
    • <50 milliseconds
