Visualization Work of Albert Boulanger

I am an advocate of always visualizing data and models and have worked on tools to support great visualizations as part of the data analysis and modeling from building 3D immersive visualizations to exploratory data analysis visualizations closely integrated with machine learning model visualization.

Smart Grid Visualization

DOE-sponsored ConEd Smart Grid Demo of LSOC and Dynamic Treatment Controller
Demo of the Load and Source Optimizing Controller and the Dynamic Treatment Controller developed for the DOE-funded Con Edison Smart Grid Demonstration Project. The Dynamic Treatment Controller has some good visualization of emerging trouble in a Con Edison network.

Oil and Gas Reservoir 4D Visualization

3D VRML Models (you can use the Cortona3D plugin to view).  Get a VRML viewer plugin here. I am working on converting these to X3D to display in modern browsers w/o a plugin.

Here are some videos of the models

Ride along with a beach ball driven by a reservoir simulation of ST295
Streaklines are visualized from the output of a reservoir simulation of ST295. The beach ball follows the trajectory of one of the streaklines. Then we are attached to the beach ball and go for a joy ride along the streakline!

Visualizations for Portfolio Management of Oil and Gas fields,
Principle Component Analysis and Visualization of Oil and Gas Companies.

Here are some paper and slide presentations with visualizations I have worked on.
