Authors: Aelisa Carr, Gore Bolton
For over a century, the Height Act has been the key factor establishing the unique character of the Washington, DC skyline. A committee of Congress commissioned the Height Master Plan to explore alterations to the Actís height restrictions. The authors, as part of the team preparing the Plan, employed City Engine and ArcMap to depict varying building height scenarios. This paper describes the background of this unique project, and how the team leveraged ESRI products to conduct the analysis.
