Data and visualisation, yesterday, today and tomorrow.

These are the topics that Gerhard Sprung, Robert Strohmaier and the Digital Media Technologies team at FH JOANNEUM’s Information Management degree programme have been dealing with again and again in recent years. Be it through the representation of complex data on the web, in apps or in VR, be it through the visualisation of historical buildings in AR and VR, or the usability of interfaces.

In addition to the technical questions, the aspect of usability and of course the (long-term) effect of applications and services on society and nature is a central point of the considerations and research.

The team is responsible for the implementation of many museum applications (Universalmuseum Joanneum, Kindermuseum Frida and Fred) and interactive visualisations in 2D, 3D and VR.

Gerhard Sprung teaches digital media technologies, 3D modelling, AR and VR application development at various degree programmes, researches and develops 3D and mixed reality applications and is particularly interested in the visualisation of historical sites.




Robert Strohmaier teaches the basics of digital media technologies in several degree programmes at FH JOANNEUM. He is also intensively involved in user interface design with a focus on user-centred design, usability and accessibility. He is currently developing augmented and virtual reality scenarios and applications as part of research projects.
