In 2014, the University of Groningen will be celebrating its 400 year anniversary, highlighting research areas such as energy, healthy ageing and sustainability. In this context, the Green Mind Project focuses on making the Bernoulliborg building and the experience it provides to its occupants, respect sustainability principles. One of the components of this project consists of a mobile application that provides occupants with insight into their personal energy consumption. In this thesis we will discuss the design and implementation of this application from both a user’s perspective as well as a technical perspective. We will build our discussion upon the traditional visualisation pipeline and discuss the consequences of implementing data visualisation in a mobile environment. The thesis address a number of topics as a theoretical foundation. We will discuss the use of a graph DBMS for storing and querying temporal data, an architecture for efficient data visualisation on the Android platform and the results of a small user study into the effectiveness of the solution. We will also briefly discuss eco-visualisation: the use of visualisation techniques to trigger a change in the behavior of users (i.e. to reduce the energy consumption of individual users).
