GovGrid was initially established in 2010 by MuniGov, the first online group for local government. The focus of GovGrid was at that time to provide a safe, secure 3D virtual space for people who work in or for government so that they can learn more about using virtual worlds. With the launch of MOSES in 2011, an opensimulator environment set up by the U.S. Army, the decision was made to close down the 3D virtual site of GovGrid and continue to maintain this website for the purpose of offering virtual assets and information. In addition all 3D activities were relocated at that time to MOSES.
Over the next year, GovGrid will begin offering opportunities for people in government to learn more about 3D technology and how it can be used by local agencies. Continue to check back as we add more information to the site about these programs.
