Urban Behavioral Simulation and 3D Visualization

July 9, 2013 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

This talk describes the UrbanSim land use model system developed by Paul Waddell with numerous collaborators, and its application to the San Fransisco Bay Area in support of the regional Sustainable Communities Strategies planning process.  UrbanSim is a micro-simulation model system that represents the location choices of households and firms within the region, and the choices of real estate developers to construct or redevelop buildings on parcels throughout the region.  It uses discrete choice models to simulate the choices of individual households and firms, and the development of individual properties.  In addition to the behavioral modeling using UrbanSim, the talk also describes the development of UrbanCanvas, a new 3D visualization platform that enables interactive visualization of 3D urban environments, and alternative development scenarios.
