Democratic Values in Planning —
Urban Design for the Public Good: Assignment 6, Modelling in Urban Planning

1. Shadow analysis in SketchUp showing shadow impacts of a 10 storey building at Fitzwilliam and Selby Streets. June 1, 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM

2. The ideal map. As 2D mapping transitions to 3D, enabling more and more layered information, the new Google Earth is currently, arguably, the best mapping format available. These are examples of the kinds of data (more is being added every day) available with this kind of mapping technologies —
  • Distance measures by car, bike, walk.
  • Ruler tool for detailed measurements.
  • Info cards link to points of interest details.
  • Layers for user inputs.
  • 3D building models.
  • Street view.
  • Photo galleries.
