Mi’kmaq-designed software that blends 3D modelling, laser scanning and environmental data is being developed to help communities in the Atlantic region prepare for the potential catastrophic results of climate change.  

The online application, developed by 3D Wave Design, a Nova Scotia-based 3D animation and communications company, allows users to simulate conditions like storm surge, inland flooding and wildfires, using real environmental, meteorological and laser scanning data.

The simulations play out over 3D representations of real communities and use accurate geographic measurements, which could help communities plan for the worst.

  1. How could you use software like this to start a business, perhaps a consulting company?
  2. ” The simulations play out over 3D representations of real communities and use accurate geographic measurements, which could help communities plan for the worst. ” Why is this so important?
