This guide serves to provide a guide to creating Geo SCADA mimics which give the functional aspects of situational awareness. It explains which features can be used to design the mimic graphics you need for your situation.
The PDF Guide is available in the list of files below. Samples are also attached.
Geo SCADA graphics are designed to be flexible, with core features of performance, and ease of design. Combined with a plant-structured database, Geo SCADA graphics lends itself to creating imaginative displays which carry the meaning of behaviors in the physical world to its users.
The real-world can be modelled in graphics with radically different approaches. Each have value, and are appropriate to the needs of users. For example, high resolution images, 3d appearance and bright animations can help someone understand the correspondence between the real world and the screen. Contrast this with simple graphics of lines and shapes, limited highlights and static animation, all of which can serve to focus a busy user's attention on only the vital information needed to run a complex process.
The different approaches can be likened to a road map vs a subway map, or a photograph vs an infographic.
