Instructional Demo
Dasher and Hyperion: using Data Visualization in a Forge viewer application

Session Description

Autodesk Research started Project Dasher in 2009 to explore the possibilities around integrating IoT data with BIM. In 2016 it was ported to work on the Forge platform, to understand the feasibility and potential for such a client application to work in the browser. This work eventually inspired Project Hyperion, which has been made available to Forge Viewer developers via the Data Visualization Extension.

While Dasher inspired Hyperion, work was needed to take this new public API and use it to replicate Dasher features. This session takes an in-depth look at this journey, exploring how Forge developers can harness the Data Visualization Extension from existing viewer applications.

Learning Objectives

  1. Know the history and features of Project Dasher
  2. Understand the origin and capabilities of Project Hyperion
  3. Integrate the Data Visualization Extension into an existing non-React web application
  4. Plan development activities based on Data Visualization features coming in the Forge viewer
