Augmented Reality Topography Lesson

Our 8th grade got the chance to learn more about topography and topographic maps through a visit by Tommy Springer from the Fairfield County Soil and Water Conservation District. Springer brought an augmented reality (AR) sandbox.  Students could mold the sand by hand and the landscape comes to life. The sand is augmented in real-time with an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water.
