Abstract

Since the Hainan Province is located at the south end of China, it is the key province to implement the Belt and Road initiative. In order to support the construction of international tourism island and Digital Hainan Province, it is required to build Hainan Province "Digital Ocean" platform to integrate ocean environment three-dimensional (3D) monitoring data, including sea, land and air data, to support ocean information visualization and decision-making support. Because of the complex of ocean data, such as spatio-temporal, 3D and dynamics, new technical framework of "Digital Ocean" platform and new techniques, such as multisource spatial data organization and management and self-adaptive visualization, need to be developed. This paper introduces the design and development of Hainan Province "Digital Ocean" platform, with characteristics of “software, data and services all-in-one integration” and “dynamic, high-resolution, automatic ocean information procession”, and its applications on natural disasters prevention and reduction. The technical framework and development method of ocean 3D visualization model based on earth sphere model are introduced. The key techniques, such as multisource, mass spatial data organization and management, mass spatial information self-adaptive visualization, submarine, seacoast, island 3-D visualization, and the multi-layer, multi-time information visualization, are developed. The Super Typhoon Sarika, which happened in Sanya city on October 2016, is used as a case study to demonstrate the whole process of forecasting, risk prediction, and disaster assessment of typhoon storm surge. This platform will be a base to integrate ocean environment 3D monitoring data and other ocean information resources of Hainan Province. The construction of Hainan Province "Digital Ocean" platform will boost the development of ocean informatization and ocean economic industry, and help to build a “Strong Ocean Province”.
