Visualization and Presentation
Bairdís system is unique in that it not only allows the visualization and
editing of the data in a three dimensional environment resulting in complete
tracks for each animal, but, also provides the opportunity to view the tracks
against dynamic environmental data (currents, waves, temperature, etc.).
Solid objects defined by some modeling languages such as VRML may also be included
in the viewing window. These may be either static objects, such as dams or
representations of receivers, or dynamic objects such as fish or other animals.
Best method to communicate complex data
The final presentation tool is the ability to animate the results, either
from a fixed position, or along a flight path that might follow the animalís
track, and a representation of the animal. These animations may be output
to various standard formats such as MPEG and AVI.
