Transit Impact: CityEngine & 3D Modeling Reveal Rail Effects on Campus
Track: Public Transit
Authors: Aaron Cheuvront, Kevin DeVito
The University of Washington, in conjunction with Sound Transit, plans expansion of the Sound Transit Link Light Rail to service the main Seattle campus and surrounding community. Trains traveling underneath campus have raised vibration and electromagnetic field concerns. The project will utilize GIS to create a public portal to show the train tunnel location and predicted effects on key buildings. CityEngine with CyberCity 3D buildings will showcase a 3D model of the Sound Transit expansion.
