Webinar: Procedural Modeling for Beautiful City Design

Procedural Modeling for Beautiful City Design

Join City of Gothenburg, Garsdale Design, and Esri, to see how the use of 3D city models can dramatically change the effectiveness of planning and infrastructure design. Learn how to create and make use of large digital 3D city models to simulate the impact of design decisions in real time, enabling decision makers to meet or exceed project goals, whether they be sustainability metrics, regulatory compliance, or cost reduction. Real-world examples will showcase the urban planning and design capabilities using CityEngine and demonstrate the application of popular urban theory within a parametric framework.

Arvid Forsberg, 3D Visualization Artist for the City of Gothenburg, will share how 3D GIS from Esri helped the city make the best selection for an infill masterplan and gather buy-in from decision makers and citizens alike. Matthias Buehler, Head of 3D Technologies at Garsdale Design will provide insights from his extensive experience working with the parametric rules and showcase the potential of CityEngine as a tool in urban planning through a complex Favela simulation. Brooks Patrick, 3D Solutions Engineer at Esri will demonstrate the 3D capabilities in the upcoming release of ArcGIS Pro and share success stories from cities like yours.

After participating in this webinar, you will

- Design massive and beautiful 3D cities
- Learn how to create 3D city models from existing 2D data
- Find out how to select the best 3D technology and resources for your needs
