NETWORK SIM – air traffic network simulation

Client Lufthansa  Year 2009  City Frankfurt-Seeheim, Germany

A 14 meter-wide 180 degrees projection lets users dive into the fully navigable, real-time 3D visualization of 16000 daily Lufthansa and Star Alliance flights.

In the flight control tower of the Lufthansa Brand Academy in Frankfurt-Seeheim visitors learn about the local and global connections of international air traffic. The intuitive navigation interface provides 6 degrees of freedom, allowing users to navigate in the four cardinal directions plus up and down in space. Additional time and content filters can be activated with extra buttons and sliders on the console. In just a few seconds of flight, visitors can move from a macro view of a local hub to a global overview of worldwide air traffic routes.

The visual appearance of the data visualization is complimented by a generative, 6 channel 3D audio system. All flight patterns are linked to spatial sound elements that follow the visual representation through space.

This installation is one of 5 interactive exhibits that WHITEvoid conceptualized and implemented for the Lufthansa Brand Academy designed by Dan Pearlman Brand Architecture.
