Technology-Enabled Urban Planning and Design

Back to Transportation

The way our we plan and design our cities has a major impact on the efficiency and the greenhouse gas footprint of our transportation systems. Advanced technologies including new ways of acquiring and processing data, open-source mapping platforms, data visualizations, and urban design software can help city planners develop optimized urban development plans, including for urban transportation systems, that maximize system-wide efficiency and significantly reduce CO2 emissions from the transportation sector.
