AugmentedReality In a sandbox

Based on work by Dr Oliver Kreylos at UCLA Davis, the Augmented Reality Sandbox supporting the work of the River Wey Trust is a dynamic model of a topographic map. Using projection, the changes in the sand surface are reflected in the changing contours and relief map colours appearing on the sand.

this gives a hands on experience for learning about contours, watersheds, flooding, and all things relating to rivers and landscape. This classroom setup was for Coombes Primary School.
