Level of detail control for environmental monitoring datasets

Miyamura, Hiroko ; Takemiya, Hiroshi; Wu, H.-Y.*; Takahashi, Shigeo*

Broad survey on the distribution of the air dose rate has been performed after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant continuously. The surveyed monitoring datasets are stored in a database and are made available to the public. Recently, the size of the datasets have been significantly increased as more detailed measurements in space and time are available, and effective reduction of the size of the datasets is necessary for visualizing and exploring such large scale datasets. However, if the datasets are not carefully reduced, we often miss a part of important features of the distribution data. Therefore, we develop an effective Level of Detail control (LoD) method for retaining critical features of the distribution. In the method, the global and local features of the distribution are extracted by means of differential topology analyses. Then, the simplified data is created by edge collapse operation with taking into account these features of the data.
