Measure Plan Impacts

Students can analyze current and future scenarios across a wide range of key metrics.

UrbanFootprint's built-in suite of analytics allows students and researchers to quickly evaluate potential plan impacts in terms of emissions, accessibility, transportation, risk and resilience, water use, energy use, household costs, conservation, and more. Teach the next generation of planners how to build sustainable, equitable, and resilient cities.

Using UrbanFootprint challenges students to think critically and creatively about the topics we cover in class. Rather than focus on mastering the technology itself, students are able to quickly visualize concepts and explore the impacts of land use changes. The ease of use really contributed to increased interest in urban planning and student engagement.
