Concept

Imagine being able to hold a GIS in your hands, feeling the shape of the earth, sculpting its topography, and directing the flow of water. We present Tangible Landscape, an open source tangible interface powered by GRASS GIS. Tangible Landscape physically, interactively manifests geospatial data so that you can naturally feel it, see it, and shape it. This makes GIS far more intuitive and accessible for beginners, empowers geospatial experts, and creates new exciting opportunities for developers - like gaming with GIS.

How-it-works

A near real-time feedback cycle of interaction, 3D scanning, point cloud processing, geospatial computation, and projection.
