  • participatory design and evaluation of planningvariants for decentralized rainwater harvesting on public streets and squares
  • the simulation of traffic behavior additionally enables the analysis of the effects of construction phases or permanent land use plan changes
  • different maps are perfectly scaled and layered to work with different levels of information in the same area
  • live synchronisation with a central database for automatic protocols and documentation
  • second screen, display or projector can be easily linked to table for larger meetings or virtual participants
  • planning tool used for planning in meetings with 12-15 people, as well as to present current projects at conferences and events

About the Project

Together with Berliner Wasserbetriebe and Berliner Regenwasseragentur, we have developed a prototype of the digital planning table. On the multi-touch table, measures for decentralised rainwater harvesting can be planned collaboratively, effectively and transparently. In the future, simulation models such as a water balance model will also be integrated. In this regard, the simulation of traffic flows has already been set up as an example. The digital planning table will help to ensure water-sensitive and climate-adapted (sponge) urban development for Berlin together with the city's administration, planners and property owners.

Our rainwater harvesting planning table will enable us to find acceptable solutions for all stakehold-ers more quickly and with less friction. The table is one of the first solutions for digital collaborative planning of rainwater harvesting projects. Interactive Scape was involved both during conceptual-ization and development and we jointly presented the result at different conferences. Interactive Scape could perfectly adapt to our technical requirements and was able to transfer these into a visually and logically attractive and high-performing interface. Thanks for the good cooperation!
