3D is no longer a luxury. It’s how planners think and design. Now, this content is pervasive and accessible to non-GIS professionals. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll utilize a revolutionary web-based app, ArcGIS Urban, to design, analyze, and report on planning alternatives and scenarios. This combines analytics, sketching tools, and dashboards to help you immediately visualize designs and scenarios. You will learn how to assess data, define key indicators, and compare scenarios, while engaging the public, to make a data-driven decision, without any GIS knowledge. Laptops and other equipment required for session will be provided.
