Abstract
With the rapid development of interaction technology, the digital sand table has gradually replaced the traditional sand table. In such fields as the real estate exhibition, the city planning exhibition, the tourist attractions showcase , the military training, the water conservancy and hydropower , and the topic galleries, due to its three-dimensional , interactive , diversified , and immersive showing effect, the digital sand table has got impressive effects and won viewers’ extensive favors. In 2010 Shanghai Expo, Chinese government wanted to show world its determination and the effect it had achieved in energy conservation. So the authors proposed and created the virtual interactive digital sand table project ‘The New Energy and Environmental Monitoring Platform in New Energy Pavilion. Based on interaction technology of Laser identification, display technology of projection fusion splicing, the artwork made use of virtual reality technology and information visualization design method in order to show vividly and visually the use of new energy and energy-saving and emission reduction measures taken in the Six Pavilions along the Central Axis, which is one of the central areas of 2010 Shanghai World Expo. In addition, the digital sand table was connected to the central database of 2010 Shanghai Expo and the sensors in the pavilions and the axis so that it can receive and visualize the energy-saving and emission reduction data of them at real time. During the exhibition duration of a half year, the project got good feedbacks from all areas of society. Shortly after viewing the virtual interactive sand table, Shanghai Bao Shan District government asked the authors to create a similar but larger digital sand table to show its district planning of Dachang Town.
