Touch screen table at National Arboretum Canberra

Touch screen table at the National Arboretum Canberra
One of the most effective displays at the newly opened National Arboretum Canberra is a touch screen table. The table has two large touch screens mounted in a bespoke wooden cabinet and displays maps of the Arboretum. This is similar in format to the Yiwarra Kuju Exhibition display at the National Museum of Australia in 2010, but on a more workable scale. It might be useful for museums to have each touch screen display in a separate case, with them then being able to be linked together for a large display, or used independently. The wooden case for the Arboretum display is reminiscent of Matt Gray's lectern design for ANU.
