Description

The purpose of this project was to create a web-based system that would get data from a cyber-physical model and present that data in a graphical format for human users. Specifically, the system would query a database containing the statuses of various pieces of the model, such as power plants and water treatment facilities. Then it would change the appearance of the graphical representation (for instance, the color) to indicate the status of each piece. To do that, it was necessary to find a software library that would provide tools for placing dynamic markers on maps. Possibilities were evaluated on such criteria as the level of detail they would allow and whether they would require an actual geographic location. The selected library was then used to create a map overlay based on the information queried from the database. The system is intended to be a prototype for displaying information about the power and water grids and which could be extended in the future to cover additions to the model.
