Using Wii™ technology the weTable transforms an ordinary tabletop into an interactive interface. This affordable public participation tool allows teams to collaboratively explore and use computer-based data and programs in a workshop setting. The weTable enhances what people use daily–tables and pens– while the supporting technology works quietly in the background. This means that participants can use the interface with very little instruction, and it allows them to work with what matters most in a meeting- data, maps, and their fellow participants.
The weTable is an ideal tool for use in community projects where participants use data and maps to help define planning priorities and strategies. The setup is especially useful for exploring GIS data and as a participatory GIS tool.
