Exhibit Integration

Our overriding goal for the DRB was that it follow a modular, hierarchical object design that can be adapted to defined stretches of the river, and which can also be extensible to accommodate further data and computer simulation modules at a later stage. Common Display tools   Visitors at the DRB
As such, the DRB environment is able to incorporate mixed datasets, more detailed data and visualizations, and novel interfaces through which visitors can query the data via combinations of physical and digital tools and navigate seamlessly from the over or on floodplain to the river’s surface and beneath
Console view
Continuity of visitor interaction and experience throughout the exhibit environment also demands a high level of integration at the data and system levels
