Join us for a presentation of the latest modeling technology out of the Immersive Cities Lab. Paul Waddell, chair of the Department of City and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley, will take us on a tour of urban possibilities using the visualization capabilities of UrbanSIM, a software-based simulation system now used for operational planning purposes in a variety of U.S. metropolitan areas and a growing list of international cities, that allows visualization of the effects of infrastructure and policy choices on community outcomes such as housing affordability, greenhouse gas emissions, motorized and non-motorized accessibility and the protection of open space and environmentally sensitive habitats.
