Visualise projects citywide

Create, track, and review development projects with a digital twin of your city. Incorporating building information modeling (BIM) and other types of 3D information throughout the project review process gives planners and developers a common view of urban development guidelines and reduces the time required for building applications.

Design 3D scenarios

Easily create, edit, and manage land-use and zoning plans with an interactive 3D environment built with planners in mind. Evaluating the impact of zoning and land-use changes in a study area is key to saving time and money while balancing precious resources. Through detailed indicators and analytics, ArcGIS Urban also enables the creation of on-the-fly scenarios to help visualise areas that would be impacted by proposed urban developments.

Guide change and measure impact

Incorporate data-driven land-use scenarios based on factors like population change, economic growth, and current zoning codes for a plan that is more resilient and responsive. By incorporating ArcGIS Urban into a comprehensive planning process, planners can more easily assess land-use changes to meet future demand.

Enable digital engagement

Clearly communicate proposals and increase buy-in by providing easy-to-understand visualisations and metrics. Reach new audiences and boost access to key demographic groups by incorporating online comments and surveys that increase public engagement.
