ARTM View is a graphical user interface for the German Federal Office for Radiation (BfS) ARTM model. The ARTM model calculates the dispersion and deposition of released airborne radioactive materials in the atmosphere.
ARTM View is the new standard for the dispersion and deposition calculation of airborne radioactive materials according to the German Nuclear Act.
The ARTM model is based on the 'TA Luft' and the 'AUSTAL2000 model'. AUSTAL2000 is a Lagrangian particle tracking air dispersion model from the German Federal Environmental Agency (UAB) (see AUSTAL View). Dose calculations were not included in the ARTM model.
Fully integrated interface combining easy to use graphical tools (e.g., sources, buildings, monitor points, and grid), seamless model run, and automated contouring and posting of results.
Complete 3D visualization of your entire modeling area. Sources, buildings, and modeling results are displayed in context with the surrounding terrain. Apply custom textures to buildings to further increase building realism. Create animation file (*.avi) of your 3D visualization.
This exciting feature allows you to export your buildings, sources, receptors and contours into Google Earth giving you a more realistic image of where your pollutants will impact surrounding areas.
Advanced terrain processing capabilities available for several terrain data formats such as SRTM, USGS DEM, and XYZ.. Automated download of DEM and SRTM files from webGIS. SRTM3 data at 90m resolution is available worldwide. Automated conversion of these formats into the GridASCII data format required by the model.
Visualizing your site in ARTM View is easy. Our full-featured support for a variety of image and base map formats allow you to design your model with confidence and view your results in context with your site. Supported base maps include: Bitmap, DLG, DXF, JPEG, LULC, MrSID, Shapefile, and TIFF/GeoTIFF.
Clear communication of your modeling and results are crucial to a successful project. ARTM View lets you impress with integrated report generation. 'Source Parameters', 'Monitor Point Results', and 'Maximum Calculation Results' are examples of reports automatically generated by ARTM View.
Meteo View, which is included in the ARTM View package, allows you to create windrose plots for your meteorological data. The following formats are supported: AKT, AKTerm, AKS, series.dmna, zeitreihe.dmna. Options to manipulate the appearance of the windrose are available such as colors, petal size, grid sectors, etc.
Meteo View, which is included with the package, can also display bar graphs of the wind class and dispersion class frequency distribution and time series graph for wind speed, wind direction, dispersion class, and rain rates.
The ARTM View user interface, help files, and user's guides are available in German and English languages. The ARTM model currently only writes messages to the log file in German language.
