Date: 30 Mar 2016
Location: San Francisco, CA, USA
Event name: Microsoft Build 2016


With more and more planes flying around the globe and the availability of powerful backend systems, there are many commercial services that provide advanced flight data analysis in 2D. The unique mixed reality capabilities of HoloLens mean that we can present that information in an entirely new way, using spatial context to delivering faster understanding for users. When you leave this session, you will understand how we solved the problem of visualizing flight data in 3D in a way suited for a holographic environment and compelling for users. We'll share some of our more vexing design challenges and how we solved them.
