MATC School of Media and Creative Arts

As part of its Computer Simulation and Gaming program, the Milwaukee Area Technical College installed a GeoDome Panorama with a 4m inflatable screen and an OmniFocus 200 series projector in August 2011. The Elumenati’s collaboration with MATC started in 2009, when we provided consulting services and Unity3D development for the Virtual Milwaukee project, formatting it for interactive display in the GeoDome Portal.

We continue to work with students and faculty in the gaming department at MATC as they add new models to Virtual Milwaukee each semester. In 2011, we created a custom Unity3D shader tool for the RiverPulse visualization project (part of Virtual Milwaukee). We also installed and trained students on the Unity3D GIS import tools we created as part of a previous project with RENCI at UNC Asheville. And our own Dr. D’nardo Colucci teaches a class on interactive displays, where students experiment with novel user interfaces for Panorama content.
