Communication matters with spatial data July 12, 2017  - By Art Kalinski


Among the many interesting presentations was one from Payam Tabrizian,
Anna Petrasova and Vaclav Petrasov, all Ph.D. candidates at North
Carolina State University and special guests of CaGIS. They
demonstrated their unique physical 3D sandbox system
(http://tangible-landscape.github.io/) using low-cost gaming scanners

Imagine being able to hold a GIS in your hands: feel the shape of the
earth, sculpt its topography, and direct the flow of water.

This open-source interface physically, interactively manifests
geospatial data, making GIS more intuitive and accessible for
beginners, and creating new opportunities for developers. It consists
of a near real-time feedback cycle of interaction, 3D scanning,
point-cloud processing, geospatial computation and projection.
