The pressure value can display in two different ways:
- When hovering over or clicking on individual junctions or colored hexagons.
- Through the Pressure theme, that can be shown or hidden using the toggle bar.
Pressure results are calculated and displayed for every junction in the network. We represent the pressure results on the map with colored hexagons ranging from dark purple to light yellow, depending on the average pressure value of all the junctions.
Qatium defines an optimal pressure range between 0-60 m (or 0-85 psi in the US system). So whenever any of the junctions has an extreme pressure value (below 0 m/psi or above 60 m or 85 psi), we use that value to color it instead of the average one.
E.g.: In the case below, although there’s some junction within the normal operating range of pressure (46.1mwc), because there is at least one above 60mwc Qatium will show it in yellow (the color in the scale used for pressures over 60mwc).
If a hexagon contains junctions both below and above the optimal pressure range, we give priority to pressures below the minimum. Qatium behaves like this in order to alert the user of pressure outside the optimal range.
The hexagons will change in size when zooming in or out, allowing you to identify better the higher/ lower pressure locations.
When hovering over each hexagon, a tooltip provides information about:
- The number of junctions it includes
- The minimum, maximum, and average pressure
- The elevation
Also, the theme panel has a range selector. Click on any colored square and it will:
- Highlight in the map the junctions that have a pressure value within your selection
- Display the number of junctions with pressures within those values
You can also see the minimum and maximum pressure at a customer level/point for a selected time step. And navigate to the highest and lowest pressure areas by clicking on them in the panel.
