Augmented Reality Sandbox

Augmented Reality Sandbox
  • Allows users to create topography models by shaping real sand, which is then augmented in real time by an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water.

  • Teaches geographic, geologic, and hydrologic concepts such as how to read a topography map, the meaning of contour lines, watersheds, catchment areas, levees, etc.

At a Glance:

The project combines 3D visualization applications with a hands-on sandbox exhibit to teach earth science concepts.
