The UrbanSim Cloud Platform provides pre-built UrbanSim models and supporting tools for crafting and evaluating a socioeconomic forecast for a small geographic area.
At the end of this course, participants will be acquainted with the UrbanSim forecasting methodology, understanding the features available in the UrbanSim Cloud Platform and the basics of an UrbanSim model at the Census block level.
We will develop familiarity with the cloud platform's user interface and explore how to use the platform to track a city's development pipeline, edit development and zoning constraints, and refine a forecast. We will use the platform to compose scenarios, launch UrbanSim simulations, and visualize model outputs using the 3D mapping interface.
This course is approved for 1 AICP CM credit.
