Project Manager / Interactive Institute Swedish ICT AB

Kista (SW)

Filip Wänström is a visualization researcher with a passion for facilitating insight and understanding. At the Swedish ICT research institute, his focus is on designing new methods, tools and technology for interactive dialogue regarding urban and global challenges. In his “Urban Explorer” project, high quality 3D maps are combined with layers of heterogeneous data and intuitive user interfaces – thus issues are contextualized and it becomes easier to reach a common understanding. Filip believes that advanced visualization technology can assist the tough processes for experts as well as for the common citizen; that feel and aesthetics are at least as important as the technology itself; and that we need to embrace new ways of communication in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
