IDELIX Awarded Contract For Visualization Technology 02.18.2002

Agreement to aid in development of the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI).

IDELIX Software Inc., Vancouver, British Columbia, makers of the visualization technology known as Pliable Display Technology (PDT), entered a partnership to integrate PDT within an Internet Client. This partnership is through the GeoInnovations program of GeoConnections, a web-based initiative led by Natural Resources Canada, to develop the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI).

PDT will address the challenge of viewing high-density online geospatial data sets on a limited size screen display. What separates PDT from other viewing technologies is that detail can be viewed within these images without having to zoom in and lose part of the image context. As a PDT lens moves across the display screen, it works as a geometric transform, giving the visual impression that the display surface "pliable" or elastic. Desired levels of magnification and detail appear within the focal region of the lens, while the lens shoulder provides continuous visual connection to the base image. The result is detail-in-context viewing with no information being hidden from view.

Product completion date is scheduled for summer of 2002.
