Solution for Interactive Information Visualisation


Abstract/Technology Overview

In a world of information overload, it becomes increasingly important to present complex data in a comprehensive way. The key is to translate complex data into meaningful visuals, followed by creating suitable interfaces to allow users to interact with the visuals in order to efficiently handle, navigate, and manipulate data.

Developed by our company, our software framework enables easily visualise information in an intuitive, interactive, and engaging manner. The information is presented virtually on a multi-touch interface through a visual portal that serves as a one-stop information point or a data presentation dashboard.


Technology Features, Specifications and Advantages

Our software framework supports touch-enabled displays, including tablets, smartphones, touch tables, interactive TVs as well as larger installations like interactive tiled walls or interactive projectors. The software framework is available as an offline version (Windows) as well as a web-based version (multiple platforms). Our solution can be fully customised to meet specific client needs.

Text, images, videos, and 3D content can be easily integrated using a simple “what you see is what you get” editor which does not require any expert IT knowledge to be used. Various formats are supported such as PDF, MP4, TIFF, JPG, PNG, X3D, OBJ, and STL.


Potential Applications

Our solution can be used as a one-stop information point in order to present your organisation and your portfolio for marketing purposes in waiting zones, lobbies, or during exhibitions and fairs. Furthermore, it can be used as an information and navigation tool, for example for exhibitions or in shopping malls.

If you run our solution on a tablet and connect it to a projector or TV, you have a powerful presentation and visual communication tool.

Finally, our solution can serve as a visual data presentation platform. A “4D master plan” of an urban development zone can be created with data from various sources translated into concise graphical representations to facilitate critical evaluation and decision-making.
