Interactive GIS Tool for Regional Planning and Economic Development

Transportation statistics and other information is more readily available for regional planners.

THE PROBLEM GIS data is typically maintained by organizations within individual states. Differences in data format and other issues prevent easy sharing and merging of different data sets, making it difficult for regional planners to get a comprehensive look at GIS information that crosses state lines such as interstate transportation. Researchers and students at CIVS…

Purdue University Calumet 2014 Year in Review

CIVS Research Paper Featured in Iron & Steel Technology

The Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) was one of six papers to be featured in the December 2014 edition of Iron & Steel Technology. The paper used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to study the relationship between iron ore reducibility, coke reactivity, and blast furnace operations.  The paper’s findings will help the iron…
