Invitation to Tender – Augmented Reality Sandbox
Introduction to requirements: Development of an augmented reality sandbox to demonstrate catchment-based natural flood management concepts
Working in partnership with the National Flood Forum, The Rivers Trust are helping to lead a 3-year project to help increase the resilience of communities and infrastructure, against flood risk in the UK.
FRAMES (Flood Resilient Areas by Multi-layEr Safety Approach) is an EU Interreg VB North Sea Region project funded under the European Regional Development Fund.
As part of the project The Rivers Trust wishes to invite applications for the development of an augmented reality sandbox, together with supporting training and engagement resources that can be used as a public engagement tool to demonstrate catchment-based natural flood management (NFM) concepts.
The AR sandbox is a visualisation tool which shows rainfall and flooding in real-time. The AR sandbox software is open source and was developed by the UC Davis W.M. Keck Center for Active Visualization in the Earth Sciences (KeckCAVES, http://www.keckcaves.org), supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. DRL 1114663.
