John, a founder of Project Haystack, commented that this may be the most important document to have been published in this project in recent years.

This document includes text examples from various projects, as well as visual examples from two sample projects:

  • Gaithersburg, MD, USA: key elements in this model include: AHUs (roof top units), pumps, lighting, power meters

  • VRT Systems Living Lab, Brisbane, Australia: key elements in this model include: weather station, lighting (internal and street), power metering, water metering, data centre rack temperature

Visualising complex data relationships is very difficult. This approach to visualisation is quite novel. We'd appreciate your feedback on how useful you find it. We are also working on other levels of visualisation in the context of our Living Lab which, when used in conjunction with others, may enhance the overall understanding.

Here in Australia, we have also implemented Haystack Tagging in the Floth HQ in Brisbane and in the Daisho 180 Brisbane building, including for their anchor tenant, CBA. For a bit of diversity, Haystack Tagging also drives the "Shame Boards" in the IGLU student accommodation buildings in Sydney and Melbourne. Haystack Tagging has also been implemented in NEXTDC's Melbourne Data Centre.

More to come...
