Milwaukee Area Technical College staffers Michael Walsh (from left), Steve Burleson, Deena Thompson and James MacDonald visit » Virtual Milwaukee» at Discovery World. Wearing 3D glasses allows people to travel above and around downtown and the lakefront.

Virtual Milwaukee’s creation began when the faculty and staff at Milwaukee Area Technical College acquired an EON Reality software lab and training and then provided visualization development coursework to students at MATC. Next, a major undertaking began which was to work in collaboration with Discovery World to design and create a digital re-creation of downtown Milwaukee called Virtual Milwaukee.
The simulation includes real terrain, elevation and infrastructure data to build a virtual version of the city of Milwaukee which can be easily updated based by Architects and City Planners.
