Expanding the modeling effort of WaterSim Phoenix, DCDC’s WaterSim America model is a unique hands-on, state-of-the-art immersive visualization tool used to explore the complexity of water supply and demand. WaterSim America explores water issues on a state level and has been implemented as a proof-of-concept exhibit within Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street Water/Ways exhibition.
The interactive, educational game challenges visitors to develop custom sustainability solutions to specific water management issues in their own state.
