April Organize, Standardize, Analyze, Visualize, then Monetize $
We live in interesting times. Who knew that our industry's organizational clarity would come from a cloud? And that this cloud would be better organized by a project called haystack. And the organizational output of the haystack would make the invisible visible which would lead to a new way to view and monetize the Building Automation Industry, OK I am done playing with words. Read this month's articles and interviews to see what set me off.
This month's cover picture
Visualizing data is like photography. Instead of starting with a blank
canvas, you manipulate the lens used to present the data from a certain
angle. When the data is the social graph of 500 million people, there are a lot of lenses through which you can view it.
Project Haystack is an open source initiative to develop tag naming conventions and taxonomies for modeling of building equipment and operational data. The project is developing standardized data models and tag libraries for sites, equipment, and points related to energy, HVAC, lighting, refrigeration and other environmental systems. Substantial libraries of tag names and proposed taxonomy models are already in place.
