Serious 3D GIS Games for Disaster Resilience Spatial Thinking
Brian Tomaszewski RIT
Abstract: This presentation will share lessons learned from a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU) Site at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) that investigated combining open geodata, Esri City Engine and the Unity game development environment to create immersive, serious 3D game environments to build disaster resilience spatial thinking skills. A case study of the research applied to Hurricane Harvey disaster response will be presented.
