Mike Batty, CASA at OSU

We're wrapping up an exciting visit by Mike Batty ( here at OSU. He has generously spent many hours with faculty and students, discussing cutting edge spatial visualization, simulation, and modeling ideas. Of particular interest to this blog is the work on loading game engines and Second Life with spatial data through which the game avatars get to interact directly, sort of, with the virtual landscape model, which then becomes...real, sort of. Reality is broken! Lots of other innovative ideas and examples can be found on the blog and in this video.
