Global Resources/Global Issues Visualization Comparisons(Flash version) or (GENI WMS Server)
Flash animation starts with the NASA Earth at Night map, then shows our planet's population, current energy production, and all the potential renewable energy resources. One of our goals is to make the energy issues of our world visible and ultimately to visualize the GENI solution.
The WMS (Web Map Service) Server is the latest and most advanced visualization of the GENI Initiative and allows real-world data to be displayed and compared online. Read more about it in the white paper: The GENI Initiative Visualization (171 MB .pdf), presented to the IEEE Power Engineering Society in July, 2008.
The Tres Amigas Superstation pdf
Tres Amigas CEO Phil Harris recently (Nov, 2009) gave a presentation about the proposed project to interconnect the Eastern, Western and Texas grids to folks at the Electric Power Research Institute.
This is an free program .exe file that you will need to download and install to view. Based on the "State of the Village Report" originally written in 1990 by Donella Meadows and since updated, this animation gives an approximate view of the world as if the population were only 100.
This printable page builds a possible global grid location. Then displays growth of grid transmission limits from the beginning of grids to the year 1980. Materials science has since grown this limit even more. Good for printing and telling others about GENI.
