COLUMBUS, Ohio — A group of Ohio University students who develop video games has produced a federally funded computer program to help emergency crews more safely respond to threats ranging from fires to terrorist attacks.

The 3-D "IVIN," or Immersive Video Imaging Network, shows the inside of the 10 most-critical buildings in Franklin County. Created at OU's Game Research and Immersive Design lab, the program eventually could be used by communities across the country.
