Post Hurricane Tracking Tool wins IEEE Discovery Award

City University London won a Discovery Award at the recent IEEE VisWeek conference for their Hurricane Tracking Visualization tool. A joint effort between climate scientists at NCAR and visualization esperts at giCentre, the work was to find a way to parse the massive database of hurricane tracks for the last several hundred years.
Through the Willis Research Network we worked in close collaboration to develop an exploratory analysis tool for the exploratory analysis of thousands of simulated storm tracks generated through multi-century global climate simulations. We use this tool to help validate the model, generate research questions and disseminate this knowledge to peers and the insurance industry who are interested in the financial impacts of atmospheric risk and impact of climate change on this.

The award shows not only the expertise of giCentre, but the important of creating tools that can make data not only accessible to the scientific community, but the public community at large.
Matthew Foote, WRN Research Director added: 'The communication of complex hazard and risk information is an increasingly critical part of insurers' decision-making process. Tools such as those being developed at City with our research partners are advancing the application of state-of-the-art technologies and the integration of world-leading science and risk management.'
