Rob Snyder conceived of and brought the idea of displaying construction drawings in-situ automatically within digital models, thereby using drawings as a focusing, sense-making, affirmation and articulation device , amplifying the interplay between part and whole, (a tool for understanding), within spatial environments, to a CAD development company (Bentley Systems), and participated in the design of the concept’s implementation in commercial software. This was introduced, as the so-called “hypermodeling” concept, in the CAD software, MicroStation, in 2012.

For discussion of where we’re going next, see our roadmap:
Tangerine’s ambition and obsession is to drive the evolution of sense-making interaction technique within spatial environments, to create and popularize a new kind of medium – through a fusion of technique in-situ within spatial media, not unlike the fusion of sound into film 100 years ago – that is more fertile ground both for human interpretation, and for cognitive computing.
We see applicability in every industry that uses visual spatial media and associated data for any purpose.
