Planysphere promenade sur Google Earth sans contact

Planysphère : Google Earth

Planysphère: visit a region through gestures.

Planysphère is a touchless interactive solution which lets you control Google Earth and take a virtual stroll through the geographic environment using gestures.


The PLANYSPHERE system is an interactive wall composed of a wide angle projector, Kinect motion sensor and a mini PC. It projects you into a chosen region to explore in total immersion.

Users stand on an area marked on the floor and the system detects them immediately. They are plunged into their chosen region, standing on the ground, where they can :

  • grab the map by closing their hand and move their vantage point where they like
  • grab the map with two hands move their arms outwards or inwards to zoom-in and zoom-out
  • raise their arms or lower them down behind them to make the camera swivel and look at the sky or ground
  • move forward and backward a step to launch an automatic itinerary from the point where they are standing (and feel like they are flying over the area)
  • place their hands behind their back to return to the starting point

The user is given complete control to playfully explore a particular surface, aerial photo or 3D city, and move around as if they were really there.

  • Detection of main user even with other parasite users in the background
  • Gestures to move, zoom, pivot and return to starting point
  • Moving towards the wall automatically launches a fly-over
  • Proximity sensor to launch an animation


Here are some examples of PLANYSPHERE applications :


For tourism organisations, this tool lets users explore the territory in an innovative way, totally immersed in the geographic features and architectural splendours.
The solution also allows users to discover the edges of the territory (the borders can be outlined) and the area’s cycling paths or hiking trails.

Property development projects

In an estate agents office or local planning agency, the application can be used to present new projects by adding the outlines, contours, cadastral plans and volumes of new developments to the map.
