Integrating physical and digital collections for a hybrid visitor experience
For the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh
DATA ANALYSIS | DATA VISUALIZATION | INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION | USER INTERFACE DESIGN
A hybrid artifact that bridges the gap between digital and physical collections at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Visitors primarily experience the Garden physically, walking along its outdoor paths. Researchers often experience the Garden digitally, browsing its living and preserved plants in online databases. A hybrid botanical artifact integrates these two experiences.
