GIS & CityEngine: Helping Save Lives Through a VR First Responder Simulation
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Erik Bushland, Anais Anderson
Learn how Sachse High School students collaborated with the city’s fire department to create a first responder simulation. Using ESRI’s AcrMap and CityEngine to recreate the city in virtual reality and other programs like Unity and Maya to complete the project, students employed STEAM education to create a simulation for route management and disaster training, and used fire and water particle systems that required understanding of physics and math for proper emulation.
