RESPEC Wins ACEC National Award for Innovative Eastern South Dakota Flood Information System

Big Sioux River Flood Information System project Receives Praise

RAPID CITY, S.D. (PRWEB) December 03, 2020

When RESPEC provided the state of South Dakota with the Big Sioux River Flood Information System (BSRFIS), we did not expect to win an award. We did what we always do: focused on the client’s needs, community improvement, and the residents’ safety. The BSRFIS advanced through local and state award stages to receive a national Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC).

In 2014, a flood revealed shortcomings in available data and modeling that prevented state and local authorities from responding appropriately. The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (SD DENR) realized the need for a predictive model and comprehensive flood-mapping system.

Following Apple Award Win, Shanghai Developers Of Genshin Impact Hopes To Build Its Own ‘Marvel Universe’

When Forrest Liu and his Shanghai-based video game developer company MiHoYo decided in 2017 to build a new mobile game to accompany its successful action RPG (role-playing game) Honkai Impact series, he envisioned an open-world style adventure, in which users can roam freely with their virtual characters.

The problem was, while open-world games have been all the rage in the console and PC space, it had never been done before in the mobile gaming space.

“It seemed like an impossible task,” Liu says. But after three years of development and “over 100 million yuan spent on the project,” the open-world mobile game Genshin Impact made its debut this past September.

It helped that MiHoYo, which was cofounded by Liu and two former college classmates in 2011, already had the smash hit Honkai series, so it wasn’t hard finding investors
