MapTable for interactive decision support

Type: Hardware and Software

Project Phase: Initiation, Planning and Design

Purpose: Allowing for interactive modelling with a group (eg. stakeholder meetings) on digital design tables

Requirements: Knowledge on modelling tool that is applied on MapTable

Relevant Software: Compatible modelling tools

About

The term MapTable refers to both hardware and software that function as a design and decision-support tool. The MapTable hardware consists of a large, potable touch-screen design table  that can be used as an instrument in spatial planning processes. MapTable software is an umbrella term for software that is suitable for use together with a digital design table. MapTables can be used for interactive design processes with stakeholders, and can assist in visualising potential problems and solutions. This tool page focuses on explaining the MapTable concept and software, including spatial databases and models that can predict impacts of designs of construction works for these projects.

How to Use

Design challenges are often multi disciplinary and involve a multitude of stakeholders. To facilitate in this process the MapTable concept was developed by the Buildinng with Nature project team. For four different design challenges (see below) the MapTable concept has been applied resulting in four practical tool applications (see Practical Applications). These tool applications are specified for different geographical locations.

For the MapTable concept a Graphical User Interface (GUI) -layer was developed to guide the user through the tool. The GUI-layer enables the user to change input parameters for each tool and model so that various design alternatives can be evaluated.
