Where's Pedro?

An 85-inch television screen combined with 8K resolution provides a tool through which multiple users can perform quick, highly detailed, visual analysis of a dataset to identify anomalies.  In order to test this, we developed a fully 3D application similar to the popular picture game Where’s Waldo.  In the Where’s Waldo game, users must find a person (Waldo) within a densely-populated picture.  In the developed application, users utilize touch and gestures to navigate a large 3D city in which a person of a varying size is placed randomly.  The application serves as a proof of concept that multiple users can interact with one large, high resolution dataset to visually find anomalies.
