Around the world, organizations use 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 community 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 communicate effectively to non-experts through a visual representation of what can be developed. Attend this workshop for an overview of ArcGIS Urban, an Esri product initiative to create transformative, web-based tools for orchestrating urban development Plans and Projects. Use ArcGIS Urban’s native 3D capabilities to understand the local real estate development “pipeline” of active projects and zoning-based development potential for any parcel within a planning study area. Explore the use of Urban’s geodesign 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.
This workshop is intended for those interested in an introduction to ArcGIS Urban, a new Esri product initiative to create transformative, web-based tools for orchestrating urban development Plans and Projects.
