Below are some markets and industries that are a great fit for the Liquid Galaxy to engage your audience in a new and exciting way. Whether as a short-term rental or a permanent installation, the Liquid Galaxy will impress!
The Liquid Galaxy is an intense data visualization tool for operations, marketing, and research. End Point can take almost any data set that contains GIS coordinates and display the data on Google Earth or Cesium. The data visualizations—bar graphs, area heat maps, shape files, connecting lines—can then be navigated in an immersive geospatial environment.
Loading your organization’s GIS data into Google Earth as KML or into Cesium as KML or CZML on a Liquid Galaxy that wraps around the room will allow your users and clients to interact and visualize your data in a totally new way. ArcGIS data can also be dynamically displayed and navigated.
End Point’s Content Management System for the Liquid Galaxy makes it easy for authorized users to point at GIS resources and load GIS markup onto the system, plus it provides the ability to create powerful presentations that go well beyond ordinary GIS presentations by overlaying photos, videos, and webpages on top of the GIS content being displayed.
The Liquid Galaxy provides an excellent tool for real estate brokerages and land use agencies to showcase their properties with multiple large screens showing 3D building models and complete Google Earth data. End Point can configure the Liquid Galaxy to highlight specific buildings, areas on the map, or any set of correlated land use data, which can then be shown in a dazzling display that forms the centerpiece of a conference room or lobby. We can program the Liquid Galaxy to show floor plans, panoramic interior photos, and even Google Street View “walking tours” around a given property.
A Liquid Galaxy in your office will provide your firm with a sophisticated and cutting edge sales tool. You will depart from the traditional ways of viewing, presenting, and even managing real estate sites by introducing your clients to multiple prime locations and properties in a wholly unique, professional, and visually stunning manner. We can even highlight amenities such as mass transit, road usage, and basic demographic data for proper context.
The Liquid Galaxy allows your clients an in-depth contextual tour of multiple listings in the comfort of your office without having to travel to multiple locations. Liquid Galaxy brings properties to the client instead of taking the client to every property. This saves time and energy for both you and your prospective clients, and sets your brokerage apart as a technology leader in the market.
As a shared immersive platform, End Point Liquid Galaxy is a natural for elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education, as well as other forms of training classrooms. Its agile Content Management System allows educators to create stories with layers of related material sourced from the internet, images, documents, and audio narrative to deepen and strengthen the learning experience, while delighting the learner, keeping them engaged and fascinated.
In museums, the system enchants audiences of all ages. The system’s cutting edge technology in itself is a powerful exhibit. Together with beautiful imagery and the ability to explore and discover, the system makes a lasting impression on visitors.
Liquid Galaxy is an immersive display platform that draws attention to the incredible global and interactive content it displays. Bringing rich satellite imagery and photography to life when experienced in large-scale panorama, Liquid Galaxy helps your clients get a taste of your resorts, properties, hotels, or cruises to inspire them to visit in person!
Having a Liquid Galaxy in your hotel, travel agency, or tradeshow booth allows you to depart from the traditional visual installation through an exciting technology that appeals to a broad audience. It will engage visitors with travelers’ photos and tweets, destination videos, creative tours, world maps, data, statistical overlays, and more.
Liquid Galaxy can render complex 3D scanned spaces and objects with full free-flight navigation and visual control. If you have a scan of an interior space, an exterior area, or even a 3D model created artificially, we can show it with full angle-adjusted immersion. This is optimal for architects, civic planners, interior designers, or scientific researchers looking to show complex models.
A powerful platform for immersive presentations
The rich satellite imagery and 3D building models of Google Earth come to life when experienced in stunning large-scale panorama. The Liquid Galaxy lets you sail around the globe with the included 6-axis controller, allowing you to instantly zoom in, out, and around in completely fluid motion. You can search for and navigate to specific locations using the touch screen interface and also tap on highlighted roads to activate Street View on the immersive displays.
Seeing panoramic video or photography of a location on the Liquid Galaxy is the next best thing to actually being there. In addition to flat two-dimensional imagery, the Liquid Galaxy can play full panoramic photos and videos that stretch beyond viewers’ peripheral vision, totally surrounding them in another place. The system is also capable of audio playback to truly bring a scene to life.
The Liquid Galaxy is a canvas for new techniques in video production that take advantage of the multiple displays, and we gladly work with content providers to adapt their work for the Liquid Galaxy.
End Point provides a browser-based content management system that allows your team to build out comprehensive presentations that combine geographic maps, pins, and GIS information with graphic overlays, video, and web pages. These presentations can be used to walk the viewer through a complete story, flying from location to location along with explanatory text, photos, and videos.
Using Unity and Sketchfab you can load architectural and engineering models on the Liquid Galaxy. Explore them, or preview and visualize new spaces that are in development. This feature is particularly useful for architectural firms looking for a powerful medium to demonstrate their creations before they are built.
End Point’s Liquid Galaxy is built on the ROS platform. We chose this platform for its I/O flexibility, highly modular architecture, and the speed with which we are able to add new capabilities. With its large and strong open source software user community, ROS is a highly versatile framework which offers intriguing possibilities for quickly extending Liquid Galaxy with virtual reality, augmented reality, and robotics integrations.
With KML it is easy to craft custom tours that integrate a variety of media on the Liquid Galaxy. Start with a high-level view in Cesium or Google Earth, and swoop down to a specific location, then seamlessly launch into a custom panoramic video tour. Next, fly back out to a higher elevation view again and then onto a different location and launch into a gallery of panoramic photos. You can create multiple tours and allow your viewers to launch the one that interests them most. Integrated tours can either be automatic or semi-interactive. End Point can help you develop custom tours for the Liquid Galaxy.
With the right customization, you can run video games on the Liquid Galaxy. We've successfully ported open source games and other games with a built-in spectator mode have to Liquid Galaxy, including Cube 2: Sauerbraten, Quake III Arena, and Second Life. With End Point’s new capabilities of view-synchronizing Unity projects across the many displays of the Liquid Galaxy, we look forward to partnering with game developers to add many more games in the near future.

End Point creates custom tours for your Liquid Galaxy. They can take many shapes and forms. A basic tour steps through a set sequence of locations. Other tour options include embedding video, photography, or 3D models at specific locations in Google Earth.
Let End Point prepare your videos, photos, 3D models, video games, animations, GIS data, and other visual content for display on the Liquid Galaxy. We’ve developed solutions for handling and converting a variety of these content types. Take your library or archives of data and media and give them a totally new life on the Liquid Galaxy.
We can produce content meeting your needs for the Liquid Galaxy. We can help you with the production of panoramic photos, videos, custom collections of GIS data, as well as 3D models in SketchUp. We are also happy to work with any of your creative partners to develop content for the Liquid Galaxy.
We have developed technology to convert your GIS data to KML, one of Google Earth’s markup languages. If you have mounds of data we can help you to transform it into stunning visual presentations on the Liquid Galaxy.
