Abstract

This paper illustrates the preliminary results of a research project focused on the development of a Web 2.0 system designed to compute and visualize large-scale building energy performance maps, so called "ecomaps", using: emerging platform-independent technologies such as WebGL for data presentation, an extended version of the EU-Founded project TABULA/EPISCOPE for automatic calculation of building energy parameters and CityGML OGC standard as data container. The proposed architecture will allow citizens, public administrations and government agencies to perform city-wide analyses on the energy performance of building stocks.
