ArcGIS Urban is an immersive 3D experience designed to improve urban planning and decision-making. Quickly visualise projects in a local context and leverage location intelligence to drive better decisions. Be more proactive and less reactive in your planning process. Simplify project collaboration across internal agencies and public stakeholders.
Smart city planning made simple
Encourage collaboration to create an inclusive and more sustainable future for your community.
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.
