Planning for sustainable cities is an exercise in intensive data science. Yet many urban planning firms are solving the challenges of tomorrow with yesterday’s tools. Get access to the comprehensive data you need to quickly assess existing conditions, build thoughtful proposals, compare scenario impacts, and keep a competitive edge with UrbanFootprint.
Stand apart from the crowd with access to a comprehensive data library, advanced scenario planning tools, and real-time reporting insights. Enhance your proposals with the ability to run existing conditions analyses and create new map exhibits in minutes. Answer and win more RFPs with the technology you need to scale and optimize the traditional proposal process.
Augment your project and eliminate time-draining data workarounds with full access to our extensive reference layer library, including nearly 100 datasets covering key environmental, census, education, health, infrastructure, land use, political boundaries, and transportation information.
Unlike the traditional planning process, cost-efficient scenario planning features allow planners to evaluate plan impacts at the outset. Evaluate project outcomes by comparing each scenario’s resulting emissions, land use, water use, energy use, walk accessibility, transportation impacts, household costs, transit accessibility, public health effects, fiscal outcomes, and conservation impacts.
Reduce the need for specialized consultants and data scientists with integrated, multi-metric analytics. Optimize your workflow and enable more of your team to perform advanced mapping and scenario tasks with easily accessible technology.
Address community concerns, build consensus, and influence stakeholders by demonstrating a consistent connection between proposed scenarios and desired community outcomes with clear, compelling reports and real-time scenario analysis.
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).
