Honolulu has the highest level of traffic congestion in the United States. The city’s GIS department transformed its 2D GIS data into a smart 3D city model in order to analyze a proposed rail project. Additionally, it created different Transit Oriented Development (TOD) scenarios and visualized how each would affect development and urban sprawl.

The 3D scenarios can be shared directly in the browser with decision makers or the public using WebGL technology. Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle stated, “GIS makes the plan clear so that people can better understand the proposal and its effect on the city.”

Join Esri’s Gert van Maren, 3D product manager, and Geoff Taylor, solutions engineer, along with Ken Schmidt, GIS administrator at the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii, to learn how to transform existing 2D data into smart 3D city models for visualization, iterative urban design and spatial analysis.
