Urban 3D

3D Web Scenes for Urban Planning, OCPs, sub-divisons


Proposed project in 2014 to develop Greater Victoria 3D models for OCPs, neighbourhood planning, developers, redevelopments, land use committees, etc. Proposed partnerships with municipality and university/college geography, polisci, environment and public admin departments. 2014 was too soon, possibly now ready for 2017-18.


Communities need new ways to engage residents and businesses earlier in the Urban Planning process:

  • to get better insights as to how the projects can more constructively benefit developer and community
  • so that projects are not slowed down or stopped late in the process of approvals.

Tools and techniques including a variety of 3D modelling techniques can assist in enabling earlier public engagement.
