With the help of big data and analytics, urban planners can now use simulations to anticipate the impact of urban development programs. Simulation allows planners to anticipate cascading effects across urban systems from water management to energy and waste management to parking. Simulations are an important bridge between theory and experiment: without affecting real-world situations, designers can predict the outcome of interventions across a range of scenario specifications. Simulations have thus become an indispensable tool for urban planners.
This week, let’s have a look at some new simulation technologies that have emerged to help urban planners & city administrators make informed decisions using data.
