Around the world, organizations use the geographic information system (GIS) to visualize the built environment, make smarter plans, engage stakeholders, and foster vibrant communities. Government leaders, partners, and citizens increasingly expect engaging online maps of their communities that convey planning information in an easy-to-understand way. Innovative cities are starting to utilize 3D mapping of zoning and plausible future conditions to effectively communicate effectively to non-experts through a visual representation of what can be developed.
Attend this workshop for an overview of ArcGIS Urban, a modeling and planning system to orchestrate urban development. Use ArcGIS Urbans native 3D capabilities to understand the development potential for any parcel within a planning study area; Explore the use of Urbans plan authoring tools to create and evaluate multiple alternatives or scenarios, using metrics and performance indicators as design feedback. Use the same 3D scenes to engage with Plan and Project influencers and decision-makers. All of this informs an evaluation of the capacity for additional urban growth, locations likely to support this growth, and the potential impacts of urban policy choices and market forces.
Training Session Participants will need to bring their own Wi-Fi capable laptop running either Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, or the latest version of the Safari web browser.
