ABSTRACT: Spatial problem solving is an increasingly important component of research, education, and decision-making. However, interactions with geospatial data are not always intuitive, posing a barrier to widespread usage. To address this limitation, tangible models have been developed that allow users to quickly and easily steer sophisticated geospatial models through physical interactions. Expanding upon presentations in the Visualizing Ecosystem Futures Live symposium, we will be highlighting the potential of one of these systems, Tangible Landscape, with 3 interactive demonstrations. We will show how Tangible Landscape can be used to teach spatial concepts like water flow, landform development, and grading. We will discuss how Tangible Landscape can be used to inform decision-making in the context of forest disease management. And lastly, we will demonstrate how this system can be linked with immersive photorealistic visualizations of the landscape to enhance user's perceptions of interventions.
