Digital Urban and CASA in Second Life – A New Look

Our section on Second Nature Island, part of the Nature Group, in Second Life is undergoing a bit of a revamp. The last few months have been focused on research into how to import data and geographic based information into the system and now we are almost ready to open our doors.

Featuring global datasets, step inside urban bubbles, real time weather bar charts and our experimental import of Virtual London the world is taking shape.

Things should be in place early next week, but its always nice to have a sneak look at work in progress while objects are being put into place…

If you have Second Life installed you can visit us by clicking here – you will get a red arrow pointing skywards, simply fly up to our section of Second Nature island.

    Great to hear. I visited your SL playground a few weeks ago for the first time, and I must say I was quite impressed. I dig the information feeds.. I like the idea of secondlife as an interface for data from the real world. I’m looking forward to seeing how your experiments develop. Keep up the good work. 🙂
