At my job (science museum of minnesota) I am working with several folks at the University of Illinois' Electronic Visualization Laboratory to prototype a new experience for visitors about water. We hope to let people play with how virtual rain flows across a variety of different maps and topographies.

This component will eventually be incorporated into an exhibit we worked on with the American Museum of Natural History called Water: H20 = Life.
