  4. 4. Product: The unique new application that allows you to integrate, analyse and communicate complex spatial and temporal environmental data in 4D Blue whale dive tracks to krill schools in Monterey Bay Canyon, California
  5. 5. What is Eonfusion? A universal, scientific level software solution for integrating, visualising and analysing diverse sets of coincident environmental data A versatile application that handles modeled, empirical and near real time environmental data Fills the gap between the capabilities of GIS, statistical analysis, graphing, visualisation and programming packages
  6. 6. Core Technology • Data model is 4D + features • Memory management designed for large data sets • Data flow modeling • Genuine 4D topology model and graphics engine • Fuses disparate data types in an integrated context • Support for user coding (API) • Intuitive user interface and coding environmental • Attribute migration • Partitions and classifies data to generate higher dimensional objects
  7. 7. Data Integration Work effectively with multiple coincident data sources in scenes Vector Raster Media
  8. 8. Analysis & Visualisation • Identify and interpret interactions between complex, multivariate data sets • Visualize time-varying data in the context of topographical data • Manipulate 4D data and Fish Abundance summary and raw acoustic backscatter information from a multiple frequency fisheries acoustic survey. linked 2D graphical data Image credit “Data provided by Chris Wilson and Paul Walline, NOAA Alaska Fisheries simultaneously Science Center.”

  12. 12. Ecosystem-wide Process Assessment High resolution DEM constructed from multi-beam bathymetry data fused with terrestrial LiDAR Distribution of vulnerable salt- marsh habitats (red) impacted by sea-level rise Projected sea-level rise from present day to 2108 Elkhorn Slough is a shallow-water embayment that is part of a 585-km2 watershed at the easternmost extent of the Monterey Bay in California. In 1974 the shoreline dunes were ADCP data showing cross-sectional flow patterns breached to extend the harbour leading to significant erosion of the channel during tidal cycling during tidal cycling and exposure of vulnerable salt marsh habitats to rising sea levels. In a holistic approach to assessing ecosystem wide processes arising from the breach scientists and engineers have utilised Eonfusion to rapidly assess the impact of altered flow dynamics and rising sea level scenarios on the vulnerable ecosystems.
  13. 13. - Autonomous Applications - Working with a large variety of sensors Standard Deviation filter applied to ADCP data to remove bad soundings. Green halos show higher Std. Dev. Unfiltered Video mapped to AUV track provides visual qualification and ground-truth Expression Evaluator capabilities Filtered
  14. 14. Environmental Monitoring ETOPO world elevation model draped with Blue-Marble satellite imagery (3D raster) 4D visualisation of telemetry data from ARGO profiling floats (netCDF Rasters) Effective visualisation of multiple water quality Explore relationships between variables and parameters (temperature and salinity) ground truth data sets using dynamic graphs
  15. 15. Change Detection Long-term change in sediment morphology between 2003-2006 dominated by erosion Change in surface morphology between Winter and Autumn 2006 indicating sediment deposition Detecting changes in surface morphology using multi-beam bathymetry data collected over Monterey Canyon, canyon between 2003 and 2006. Using Eonfusion’s Expression Evaluator, depth attributes from consecutive surveys were used to calculate the change in surface morphology with the magnitude represented inside the scene view (dark blue colouration indicate areas of erosion through to dark red for areas of deposition). Eonfusion's time slider allows the easy transition between survey grids for rapid assessment of both intra and inter-annual change.
