Abstract

Urban planning experts often use Computer models to help evaluate alternative land use policies, particularly as they interact with transportation and environmental decisions. The greatly increased data volume provided by new land use models makes their effective use difficult without suitable visualization tools. We present Urban View, a visualization system for urban modeling, and describe a user study to determine appropriate visualizations for the urban modeling domain.
