QUT Welcomes King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of The Netherlands
ViseR were proud to be part of the visit of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of The Netherlands on November 4. Throughout 2016, we’ve been collaborating with Australian and Dutch organisations (Queensland Reconstruction Authority, Deltares, HydroNET) to create modelling and visualisation tools for assessing flood risk.

ViseR assisted Deltares to adapt The Smart Scanner to The Cube, one of the first pieces of content to use our massive 8K projector resolution.
Adapting applications to size and scale of The Cube presents new challenges for user interaction and effective data interpretation. With Deltares’s Simone De Kleermaeker and developer Almar Joling, we adapted the user interface to suit the Cube scale and proportions, and assisted in development of a remote control system for Their Majesties to interact with the projected application. This is very early work, but so far has delivered very positive results when using application of this nature on The Cube.
With our work on The Cube Globe and The Smart Scanner, ViseR and Deltares will be expanding the platforms to enable organisations to better connect with communities and coordinate initiatives between authorities, planning groups, and governments. In doing so, we hope to make a difference to vulnerable communities and landscapes around the globe.
