1. A computer, comprising:
a processor communicatively coupled to a non-transitory computer readable media containing a computer program executable to:
convert fluid flow data generated by each of a plurality of physical sensors correspondingly disposed at each of a plurality of location coordinates in a spatially referenced three-dimensional physical model disposed in a wind tunnel generating a fluid flow over said three-dimensional physical model to simulate wind flow from a plurality of wind flow directions to correspondingly predict wind speed values from each of said plurality of wind flow directions at corresponding geographic locations in a pedestrian wind environment;
render a graphical representation of said spatially referenced three-dimensional physical model;
depict one of a plurality of graphical indicators in said graphical representation of said three-dimensional model space at each of said plurality of location coordinates corresponding to a physical sensor in said spatially referenced physical model; and
correspondingly associate said predicted wind speed values associated with each of said plurality of location coordinates corresponding to the physical sensor in said three-dimensional physical model with each of said plurality graphical indicators located in said graphical representation of said three-dimensional physical model,
depict said plurality graphical indicators of the physical sensor having a first indicator portion and second indicator portion, said first indicator portion associated with a first indicia and said second indicator portion associated with a second indicia, wherein said first indicator portion comprises a spherical indicator portion and wherein said second indicator portion comprises a circumferential indicator band disposed about said spherical indicator portion, wherein said first indicia and said second indicia depict correlation of said predicted wind speed values at each of said plurality of location of the physical sensor to a plurality of wind speed ranges defined by a plurality of wind threshold values.
