3D Solutions for Comprehensive Planning

Whenever you are planning for growth, managing current operations, or designing new development in your community, you must understand the project’s situation. This webinar explores how 3D GIS can inspire and guide city planning initiatives by combining the scientific power of geospatial data with 3D city modelling to facilitate data visualization, scenario impact simulations, cross disciplinary collaboration, and storytelling.

Join the City of Boulder, Bergmann Associates, and Esri as we highlight cases of how cities can leverage 3D to visualize ideas in a way that anyone can understand, raise awareness and increase public engagement. Lesli Ellis, Comprehensive Planning Manager with the City of Boulder will share their approach to the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan Update with new tools to support 3D storytelling and scenario planning based on zoning typologies citywide. Eric Brady, GIS Project Manager at Bergmann Associates will provide insight into a series of recent city examples and the step by step adoption process of 3D basemaps for infill planning and development review. Brooks Patrick, Account Executive at Esri will provide a general overview how Esri’s ArcGIS platform continues to grow in support of planning and public engagement.

In this webinar you will learn

  • How to turn on your 3D city basemap and planning toolbox.
  • Methods for making the switch to new media applications for public engagement.
  • How cities are successfully leveraging new 3D enterprise GIS technologies
