Eyes on the Street: A Geodesign Process for Evaluating Eyes on the Str
Authors: Travis Flohr, Michael Hinke
This paper illustrates a Geodesign method for using CityEngine and 3D analysis to evaluate what Jane Jacobs refers to as eyes on the street. Our method uses 3D GIS analyses and CityEngine models: using LIDAR, parcels, building footprints, zoning, land-use, and field collected data. Buildings were modelled using existing zoning and form-based code to create CityEngine rule sets. This method allows to document eyes on the street for existing and proposed urban design changes.
