Sustainability at All Scales

Sustainable cities conserve and restore resources while they create diverse, livable, and human-scaled places. Sustainable design must operate at all scales simultaneously – from project and block to neighborhood, district, city, and region. UrbanFootprint allows planners to quickly understand plan impacts at every level. Evaluate local efforts in the regional context or flip the scale to assess regional plans at the local level.

Get the Latest Thinking from Calthorpe Analytics

The Internet of Things and Big Data are making cities in many ways conscious; they are more and more self-adjusting, homeostatic and autonomous. In this framework, UrbanFootprint changes the way cities can think about themselves. It enables self-awareness (dynamic data), articulates expectations and goals (scenarios), allows reflection (analysis of outcomes) and generates insights (patterns of co-benefits).
