Senior VP and Chief Operating Officer, Ruekert/Mielke Engineering, Waukesha, WI on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 7pm in American Geographical Society Library, 3rd Floor, East Wing, Golda Meir Library Building, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 2311 E. Hartford Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53211.

A 3D map model can be an effective way to help educate the public or community decision-makers about a proposed project. Whether for a plan of a subdivision, a drainage or flood control system, environmentally sensitive wetland, watershed, or even your favorite lake, a 3D model literally jumps right off the map. Just by looking at it, the layman begins to understand the “lay of the land.”

Michael Campbell has constructed over 30 of these models for many area communities, and will talk to us about this unique tool in public decision making. He received his Civil Engineering degree at Marquette, and has been with Ruekert/Mielke since 1984. He is the firm’s expert on stream modeling, floodplain analysis, and infiltration/inflow.

Join us at 6:30 pm for socializing & light refreshments before the talk, which is free and open to the public.
