Weir Group

The Client

Weir Group are a FTSE250 company creating innovative engineering solutions for the minerals, oil & gas, power and industrial markets.


The Problem

Weir Group were invited to attend a conference in Houston, Texas whereby they could showcase at NASA. Their vision was to create a 3D Globe to be used in a presentation but also to be an interactive feature on a theatre screen.


What We Did

Intellicore built a bespoke piece of software that showed a globe in 3D. The perspective of the viewer was as if they were sitting in a spaceship looking down at the earth and could control its orientation. The user could rotate the earth looking for points and click on them. When clicked, a message pops up giving more information about that location. The application allowed users to see who else was using the application at the same time and what they were looking at, making it interactive.


We had to work some magic on this particular solution as the client wanted to show it on a large screen. The immediate hoop to jump through was to ensure that the display preserved the data of those registered and logged on to the solution and using it. We therefore mirrored it from one desktop screen to another prior to projecting it onto the large screen format. This meant that the user at the display could use a computer with no access to personal data whilst enjoying the full functionality of the software we had built.


If you would like a bespoke piece of software showing something unique and innovative then we would love to work with you. Please call us on 01224 213335 to discuss your requirements further.
