About

Mark Brown completed his PhD at the HITLab AU University of Tasmania in 2015. His research topic explored using 3d printed objects on a Multi-Touch Table to improve understanding by adults of natural resource issues. The successful application employed interactive live mapping information with interactive physical model tools. The application was awarded an iAward in 2015 for Regional, Inclusion and Community. Mark managed a Spatial Information Unit for the Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment for 15 years, for the 6 years prior he worked for the Launceston City Council.
