Landeslehrpreis für Lehrkonzept „Mediale Ausstellungsgestaltung“

„Sie überzeugen mit ihren innovativen und kreativen Ansätzen in der Lehre und stehen stellvertretend für die vielen Lehrenden, die unsere Studierenden täglich begeistern und mit in neue Wissenswelten nehmen.“ – Wissenschaftsministerin Theresia Bauer, Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg (MWK).

Situated Analytics Workshop with Dieter Schmalstieg and Philipp Fleck

For the past few years, one can observe increased interest in combining visualization with new user interface technologies, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). While immersive visualizations are usually implemented in VR, situated visualizations are grounded in the real world and, therefore, implemented in AR. With a mobile AR display, the user is freed from having to bring the data to the workplace and, instead, may go where the data belongs.

Poster at UIST 2021
