Playing in the Sandbox: 3D table visualization and other interfaces
for community decision making
by Stephen Guerin, Redfish Group and Santa Fe Complex

This talk will demonstrate recent work by Redfish Group at Santa Fe
Complex developing multiuser interactive 3D sandtable interfaces. The
sandtable is used by community stakeholders to visualize dynamic
geographic data streams and to interact with agent-based models of
urban systems.

An opensource structured light approach for scanning a 3D surface
using a projector and webcam will be shown. An alternative method will
also be demonstrated using the 3DV ZCam which will be available to the
game market in spring 2009. Lastly, I will discuss a preliminary
approach for mapping machine vision events in camera coordinates to
projected images on non-planar surfaces.

This talk will include a broad invitation to individuals to come play
at sfComplex and collaborate on interesting projects.

Stephen Guerin is President of RedfishGroup <>,
a R&D consultancy applying the emerging science of complex adaptive
systems. His work centers on visualization, modeling and the design of
self-organizing systems. He is the founder of Santa Fe Complex
<>, a non-profit project workspace that
fosters connections in technology, science and art. He lectures on
agent-based modeling and visualization as a faculty member of Santa Fe
Institute's Complex Systems Summer School.

Stephen lives in Santa Fe with his wife, Alison, and two young sons.

The ECE building is located on the campus of the University of
New Mexico (building 46 on the campus map). Directions can be found
