Graph Storytelling

When complex data for an interactive media product is stored in a graph, iterative updates to user experience and narrative experience can be handled more efficiently than through a traditional Relational Database Management System (RDBMS).

Our XR visualisation tool, Grapho is the result of extensive R&D.

Our ongoing R&D continues to test and refine:

  • feasibility of live querying the graph from a spatial computing interface
  • feasibility of procedurally generating meaningful narrative pathways from a graph.
  • feasibility of maintaining a graph through non-technical web content management processes
  • feasibility of graph data storytelling in Virtual Reality as a virtual production
  • hand tracking VR interfaces for graph data manipulation
  • feasibility of using a standardised graph interaction mechanic “Grapho” across different datasets and applications
  • feasibility of graph data storytelling in Virtual Reality as a virtual production
  • hand tracking VR interfaces for graph data manipulation
  • usability of a standardised graph interaction mechanic “Grapho” across different datasets and applications
