ArcGIS CityEngine for Urban Design

Thursday, Apr 13 | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Grand Canyon | Building E

Workshop presented by Esri’s own Jason Karian and Renia Kagkou.

This hands-on workshop introduces ArcGIS CityEngine software at an intermediate level, from recreating existing conditions, to the planning, design, and detailing of proposals using the latest 3D procedural design rules. CityEngine can assess the impact of design decisions in real time, enabling decision-makers to meet or exceed project goals, whether they be sustainability metrics, regulatory compliance, or cost reduction. Various project examples will showcase the urban planning and design capabilities.

Please note that this event is available for in-person attendance only. Register to attend.


Geodesign in Action: Incorporating Sustainability in Ruled-Based Street Design Visualization

Wednesday, Apr 12 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Auditorium | Building Q

Lightning Talk presented by Ilir Bejleri, Associate Professor, University of Florida

Long term suitability is rarely considered in street design. To address this issue, this study proposes a framework that incorporate measures of suistainability in rule-based modeling of street design alternatives using CityEngine Complete Streets rule. We adopt GreenLITES suitability criteria and apply them to a proof of concept application that compares four different design scenarios. The results show that this framework can be used to assess street sustainability during the conceptual design phase and can be customized to achieve communities’ sustainability goals.

Please note that this event is available for in-person attendance only. Register to attend.


Geodesign in Practice: A Multi-Platform Workflow to Enhance Virtual Impact Assessment in Geodesign Project

Wednesday, Apr 12 | 3:15 PM – 4:15 PM PDT (6:15 PM – 7:15 PM EDT)
Auditorium | Building Q

Presentation by Leilei Duan, Lecturer, Spatial Sciences Institute, University of Southern California and Guoping Huang, Associate Professor, Spatial Sciences Institute, University of Southern California.

We have developed a multi-platform workflow that integrates models from CityEngine and BIM/SketchUp to be displayed in Esri Webscene with automatic customed view points to provide fast and precise visual assessment of new developments. The innovations of this workflow are two folds: 1. It creates a replicable pipeline for GIS-BIM integration; 2. The Webscene view points are created with an automatic process that customizes the webscene’s URL, instead of the traditional manual generation process. This workflow allows autumatic visual impact assessment for developments.

Access Type: In-Person, Livestream. Register to attend.
