Government agencies, city planners and others are having to make increasingly complex decisions about city infrastructure, development and planning. These decision makers are leveraging new technologies that allow them to collect more data than ever before, from crime statistics to traffic patterns. But how does the city convert that information into actionable and usable data? Some urban planners are building 3D city models embedded with information about transportation, utilities, roads and other data. When information is packed into one 3D model, cities can more intelligently use resources, plan for future population changes and predict impending infrastructure needs.
