ARL has been working on a visualisation project with AgResearch and Rural Innovation Lab for almost two years now. Creating plenty of buzz when first showcased at Fieldays last year, the refined version 2 prototype of AgResearch's Hyperfarm tool could be available to a select group of users to trial in 2021.
Hyperfarm uses data collected from farms, scientific research and regulators (such as Environment Canterbury) to model changes. ARL developed software that turns the data into a digital simulation, so farmers can see the effects of their decisions over 15 years in a period of just seconds.

Animation Research Ltd has been recognized for our resilience and ingenuity during the COVID19 pandemic, manifested in the successful pivoting of our services in growing relationships and business between the USA and New Zealand during 2020.
The 2020 AmCham - DHL Express Success & Resilience Innovation Awards recognized 6 New Zealand companies, including Animation Research Ltd. Our Sports Division 'Virtual Eye', was able build a new platform to continue covering PGA Tour Golf from our offices in Dunedin (where traditionally we deployed crews of up to 12 people to locations around the world) and also support Major League Baseball with the aid of state-side staff, once international travel became impossible.
