This EnergyVis workshop series originated as a Workshop on Urban Visualization specifically focusing on Energy Resilient Cities. This was held in June 2020 in conjunction with the ACM e-Energy 2020, Melbourne, Australia (virtual). This workshop was the 3rd in the CityVis Workshop series.
Energy Resilient Cities was seen to be an important topic for focus for this first domain-focused Urban Visualization workshop. The energy sector is seeing substantial technological and analytical enhancements enabling the delivery of smart systems via sensors, monitors and other digital technologies as well as improvements to predictions, forecasts and models throughout the industry. This emerging data is not only growing in volume, but in its complexity. This complexity increases as we draw connections with other urban infrastructures and incorporate populations.
Visualization and visual analytics offer a vast array of opportunities for the energy domain and we are now seeing a new era of ‘Energy Data Visualization’ emerging as a key topic of growing importance. The workshop in 2020 aimed to bring together scientists, researchers and practitioners from the energy field to discuss the many challenges and goals in regard to Urban Data Visualization, with a specific focus on Energy Resilient Cities
The identified challenges, goals and insights from the first three CityVis workshop series (including the EnergyVis workshop) are available to read in the recently published paper:
