Tiling the Magicverse

Description:
The rapid display of large and complex 3D datasets is a recognized problem in the visualization of geospatial data and 3D digital mapping. This problem is mostly due to hardware limitations of the devices on which the data is to be displayed; specifically processing power and memory capacity. Our project takes on this problem in the context of the Magic Leap 3D spatial computing augmented reality device. We met most of our project goals, or better said, we have prototypes of all the components that are needed to display large complex geospatial datasets in the Magic Leap device. At the same time we encountered several problems that need further work to be fully resolved, for example the segmenting of the data into manageable chucks functions in our prototype, but needs further improvement to be truly useful.
