Authors: Dmitri Bagh, Brian De Vogel, Dale Lutz
Researchers at VU, Amsterdam are leveraging Esri CityEngine and Minecraft to increase citizen engagement in neighborhood design & planning. Inspired by UN-Habitatís Block by Block, the project combines 2D & 3D datasets to create a 3D model in CityEngine. This GIS output becomes a canvas of the city in Minecraft, offering a gaming-style geodesign tool that citizens and their children can interact with. This presentation will explore how 2D data can be leveraged in 3D with Esri CityEngine.
