Lunch & Learn: CityEngine - An Introduction

February 28, 2018, 12:00pm - February 28, 2018, 1:30pm

The session of the day is: "Introduction to CityEngine" Speakers: Brooks Patrick, Devin Lavigne, Pascal Mueller Esri CityEngine is a powerful tool for generating 3D content from the 2D GIS data you already have, but the effectiveness of the tool relies very much on the quality and depth of useful information provided by your data. For example, building footprints with heights, roof form type, and exterior wall type will create more realistic, procedurally generated structures than footprints alone. This session will introduce the procedural CGA scripting language and discuss the kinds of features and attributes on which they will rely. It will also discuss how thematic representations of your data, rather than a pure photo realistic view, can be a powerful addition to how you view your data in 3D.
