The Mapping module provides a tool for mapping:
- Yearly and hourly heating, cooling and Domestic Hot Water (DHW) demand and consumption from different typologies of end-users – this can be done with the City Mapping Module (CMM) and District Mapping Module (DMM);
- Theoretical-technical energy potential for heating and cooling supply from renewable conventional and unconventional sources and waste energy sources available at urban and industrial level – with the Source Mapping Module (SMM).
The input data for the mapping module depends on the mapping algorithm that is used and is typically a combination of satellite-derived data, geographical data (GIS), key figures and statistical information. The mapping algorithms can deal with different levels of data availability. Top down and bottom up algorithms are available. The Mapping module is divided into three sub-modules: District Mapping Module, City Mapping Module and Source Mapping Module.
