AirWare includes a set of basic and composite data types and OBJECTS
for which dedicated import, editing, analysis and display functions are provided.
The data types include:
These basic data types are grouped into various compount structures or OBJECTS:
OBJECTS are complex composites of basic and derived datatypes; examples for OBJECT classes in AirWare include:
- Descriptors are scalar, symbolic, numeric (with associated symbolic range definitions and defaults),
or text variables that are
managed by the embedded expert system and a dedicated interactive editiong tool.
Descriptors are used to define the parameters for more complex types such as:
- Time Series which in addition to their numeric value have an associated explicit time stamp;
- Matrices, which in addition to the numeric value of each cell have a location (georeference) and geometry,
including possible vertical layering, and again may have explicit time stamps.
- GIS data (georeferenced) including points, lines, topological networks, polygons,
and rasters as individual map overlays and composite maps.
- Hypertext including imagery, used to descrobe OBJECTS (see below);
- Monitoring Stations that contain time series data;
- Point Sources that hold emission data;
- Indudstraial plants, that combine several point and possibly area sources;
- Area sourcxes of emissions;
- Line sources representing road segments;
- Road networks that provide a topological framework for line sources;
- Matrix objects, that manage the 2D data sets for the distributed models;
- Model domains that define areas of interest for simultion;
- Meteorological scenarios, tha hold consistent and complete data sets
for the simulation models, bound to a model domain and derived from monitoring stations.
- Emission scenarios, dynamically derived for a model domain;
- Model scenarios, that compile the above sub-scenarios and can trigger model and display and analyse their results;
