Bringing together a group of enthusiastic scientists and experts in the field of space, the fourth Living Planet Symposium was held in Edinburgh in September and Pufferfish were thrilled to be able to contribute two of our ‘out of this world’ spherical displays to the event.
Organised by the European Space Agency, in conjunction with the UK Space Agency, it is the first time the event has been held in the UK and saw more than 1500 scientists gather to present their latest findings and data gathered from the Earth Explorer Missions.
Teaming up with data gathering and processing experts Global Surface Intelligence, we used an interactive PufferSphere M600 to display their data in an intuitive touch globe format. Using newly developed gesture control software built into our on-sphere touch, users were invited to switch between three different modes of video, animation and an interactive data set which geographically illustrated the amount of carbon stored by vegetation on our planet.
Not content with one video ball at the conference, we also had a PufferSphere M600 display on the UK Space Agency stand which brought new life to global data sets supplied by both the Met Office and NOC to and helped highlight the geographical spread and movement of their data.
A fascinating event to be involved with, we would like to thank the teams at Global Surface Intelligence and the UK Space Agency for having us along.
