Project funded by Boeing Corporation, with collaborators from the Engineering Department and Computer Laboratory.

Two application scenarios were investigated with working prototypes. The first, built by Gerhard Reitmayr, used a projection augmented physical map to interact with real-time information about flood management. The second, built by Darren Edge, used a bimanual peripheral display with tangible tokens for short-term coordination of an engineering team. This system was deployed at AlertMe, and evaluated by a team including Laura James and Amyas Phillips.
