Analyze Current and Future Land Use and Policy in Minutes
UrbanFootprint’s analytics suite measures existing conditions and future plan impacts across a range of key metrics in record time.
Calculate carbon and pollutant emissions associated with energy use, water use, and transportation.
Map and measure projected impacts of sea level rise, flood inundation, and fire hazard.
Measure impacts on natural lands and land consumed by urbanization, including details like greenfield versus infill and redevelopment.
Estimate electricity and natural gas use for residential and commercial buildings based on building type and climate zone.
Analyze current and future indoor and outdoor water consumption for both residential and commercial buildings.
Map and measure public transit access to employment, parks, schools, hospitals, and more.
Assess and map vehicle miles traveled, fuel use, and emissions for current and future scenarios.
Measure and map walk access to transit stops, parks and schools, services, and other key amenities.
Analyze annual household expenses associated with energy, water, and transportation use.
Assess impacts on water quality, habitat, agriculture, and carbon sequestration.
UrbanFootprint Analysis Modules and advanced scenario planning capabilities deliver actionable insights to address complex questions: How will land use choices impact emissions and climate action plan goals? How might different plans impact household costs and vehicle-miles traveled? Get the tools you need quantify impacts and benefits for unlimited scenarios.
Customize model assumptions to get the most accurate assessment of current and future land use conditions. Test how building efficiency, auto fleet, and emissions policies impact key outcomes. UrbanFootprint users can edit analysis assumptions to reflect local conditions or test policy variations.
Communicate scenario impacts with ease. Use UrbanFootprint’s built-in reporting templates to compare scenario outputs across a wide range of metrics, including conservation, emissions, water use, energy use, and more. Enhance public engagement and support data-driven conversations with clear, transparent reporting.
UrbanFootprint’s Analysis Modules build on over 30 years of expertise in urban planning and are engineered by our team of data scientists. Ready to dive into the details of each module? View our methodology guides to learn more.
The Analysis Modules provide insights on a host of key planning, conservation, and mobility metrics, from energy and water use, to walk access to schools and transit, to sea rise and habitat impact. For example, if you’re a city planner working on a comprehensive plan or climate action plan, the Emissions Module will provide guidance as to how current and future land use changes may impact greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions. In that same climate action plan, you may want to test various scenarios for impacts on vehicle miles traveled or water use.
