Abstract:

Tables have historically played a key role in many real-time collaborative environments, often referred to as “Operation Centres”. Today, these environments have been transformed by computational technology into spaces with large vertical displays surrounded by numerous desktop computers. Despite significant research activity in the area of tabletop computing, very little is known about how to best integrate a digital tabletop into these multi-surface environments. In this paper, we identify the unique characteristics of this problem space, and present the evaluation of a system proposed to demonstrate how an interactive tabletop can be used in a real-time operations centre to facilitate collaborative situation-assessment and decision-making.
