In part 1
, you were introduced to an energy consumption analysis application created on the NetBeans Platform at the Universidad de Zaragoza in Spain. Today I received several more screenshots from Pablo Estrada, of the latest state of the application, which lets the designer create a residential area composed of a perimeter, plots, streets, and buildings. The streets divide the perimeter surface into different plots where the user can drag and drop buildings, after which energy consumption can be analyzed.
Here they are, hopefully they'll inspire others to make similar cool modular desktop applications!
Here's the home page for the app, currently under construction: http://ursos.unizar.es/index.php/home.
