UrbanFootprint is a product of Calthorpe Analytics, a software and services company founded on 30 years of leadership in regional planning and analysis. Founded by leading urban planning and design professionals, UrbanFootprint is the first end-to-end SaaS offering in the industry. Our tools help municipalities, NGOs, private urban planning firms, and regional planners enact innovation, evolution, and sustainable solutions that change the way cities grow.
Every decision we make stems from our deep understanding of the interaction between planning and infrastructure decisions and the fiscal, environmental, public health, and livability challenges that face states, regions, and cities across the globe. Not only have we led some of the largest and most complex planning efforts in North America, we continue to innovate tools and methodologies that propel the planning profession toward more efficient workflows and more effective outcomes.
We created this robust, intuitive software as a response to the real-life challenges planners face daily. Drawing on our decades of experience providing planning solutions for complex and high-stakes projects, we combined extensive knowledge, proven strategies, and today’s data analytics capabilities to create software that helps you do your job more effectively.
We understand the true demands placed on urban planning firms, municipalities, NGOs, and regional planners. We set out to streamline the process for planners to win new business, consolidate and organize higher quality data, evaluate and select scenarios more quickly, and communicate more influentially with stakeholders.
By sharing the tools that work for us with other planners and designers, our goal is to advance the industry as a whole.
We are a mission-driven firm, committed to sustainable urban design. The future of our cities is the future of our social coherence, economic vitality and environmental sustainability. Our methodologies and tools reflect our belief that sustainability and economic prosperity are not only increasingly conjoined, they will soon become indistinguishable.
We are committed to helping cities, regions, NGOs and private urban planning firms translate their ideas on sustainability into a vision that garners consensus. The UrbanFootprint platform races to meet the future by incorporating new processes that evolve over time as new input is added, learning from the gains and experience of current generations to inform the next.
UrbanFootprint was founded by two acclaimed industry professionals with decades of experience in the urban planning and design field. Against this backdrop of extensive industry involvement, they developed tools, technology and strategies that would eventually become UrbanFootprint.
