Urban planning projects — especially in long-range planning — often come with a high level of uncertainty. Getting the visualization of uncertainty right will be an essential key to effective decision-making in urban planning processes. What is currently missing are best practices on how to visualize uncertain urban planning projects in 3D.
In this article, we are exploring different 3D visualization techniques in the context of urban planning. The techniques are discussed regarding intended or unintended impacts on the perception of urban planning projects by stakeholders.
- static renderings
- dynamic 3D scenes
- sketchy edges
- floor plates vs. building volumes
Are you interested to learn more, explore the different 3D visualization interactively, and contribute to best practices?
