Preconference Workshops and Training

Redlands Redevelopment CityEngine Training

CityEngine is able to simulate the impact of design decisions in real time, enabling decision makers to meet or exceed project goals, whether they be sustainability metrics, regulatory compliance or cost reduction. The Redlands Redevelopment Example provides a template for showcasing urban planning and design capabilities using Esri CityEngine. This training introduces CityEngine at an intermediate level from of existing city creation to the planning and redevelopment of a site using new 3D City Design rules.

Intended Audience

This instructor led training session is intended for anyone interested in 3D urban design.


Classroom-style training with hands-on exercises using CityEngine and ArcGIS 10.2. Familiarity with ArcGIS Desktop and CityEngine is recommended.


One Day (8 hours) – Offered on Tuesday, January 20 or Wednesday, January 21





Comes with workbook and example rules and data.

Story Maps: Using ArcGIS as a Communications Medium

Whether assessing current condition or future impact, effective communication is an important part of the design process. Story maps combine intelligent Web maps with Web applications and templates that incorporate text, multimedia, and interactive functions.

Intended Audience:

Anyone interested in learning how to create story maps. Beginning familiarity with general mapping concepts recommended.


Classroom-style training with hands-on exercises using ArcGIS Online.


2 hours (8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.) - Offered on Wednesday, January 21



Practicing Geodesign Using ArcGIS

Geodesign provides a framework and robust tools that support rapid evaluation of design alternatives and their impacts. This course teaches planning and design workflows to iteratively model, visualize, and quickly evaluate the impacts of individual decisions on the overall design of a three-dimensional geographic space. Some course exercises use tools provided in ArcGIS 3D Analyst and Spatial Analyst extensions.

Intended Audience

GIS analysts and other professionals working in urban planning, design, facilities management, or a related field who need to apply geodesign techniques.


After completing this course, you will be able to

  • Integrate geodesign process steps with the ArcGIS analysis workflow.
  • Prepare data for use in GIS models.
  • Create suitability models that consider multiple criteria appropriate for a given project.
  • Use rapid iteration to visualize and evaluate different design options within the space.

Using GeoPlanner

GeoPlanner for ArcGIS helps planning and design professionals create, share, analyze and report on design alternatives. In this training, you will use GeoPlanner to access shared datasets from ArcGIS Online to help you visualize and understand the site conditions in which a design or plan evolves. You’ll then learn how to use GeoPlanner to create, evaluate and compare multiple scenarios. Finally, you’ll learn how to identify optimal site locations and identify risks using spatial analysis and suitability modeling.


Half day (1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.) Offered on Tuesday, January 20 or Wednesday, January 21
