Mapping has always been a powerful tool for planners and policy makers, but it becomes even stronger with the advent of data-driven 3-D mapping and design software like Esri’s CityEngine. These applications have the potential to enrich planning efforts and to better inform planners about transportation systems and sea level rise. Stop by the Urban Center to learn more about how 3-D planning is the future of how we plan our cities. Co-presented by Northern California APA.
