About

This demo integrates statistical data about Alternative Fuel usage in the United States, including the distribution of fuel stations of each state (in comparison with other state level government data such as population, total stack air emission, etc.), the consumption of several federal fleets across different years, as well as the transportation fuel usage between US and UK

Interesting Observation

  • For the state level comparison, by selecting different types of fuels, we could see that different states have their own "preferences" on alternative fuels. For example, Minnesota is the leading state in the number of states for E85, North Carolina leads the BD, while California leads in CNG, ELEC, H2, and LNG. Texas leads in the number of LPG and gasoline stations.
  • We could see the alternative fuel consumption of the federal fleets. Take Department of Energy for example, the consumption of E85 and B100 kept increasing from 2000 to 2008. However, its consumption of Electric increased tremendously in 2001, after which its consumption decreased to almost zero in 2004 and thereafter.

Technology

  • We convert the raw data about transportation fuel consumption in US and UK to RDF, and load them into a triple store
  • Some of the US data is at state level, so that we can query along with other state-level data existing in the triple store, including population, household, air condition, etc.
  • The query results are directly consumed by Google visualization APIs, GeoMap for state-level data comparison and MotionChart for data showing trends over years.
