    Interactive 3D visualization

    Hello all,

    Is it still in demand? Being able to interactively explore the design by walking or flying through the 3D environment engages diverse minds (specially communities).

    Thanks.

    Our firm does this, and by the amount of work they have, yes it is still popular and growing more so.

    We unveiled a new software to our County Board today. It involvded a request for a zone change that would have allowed a 230-foot resort condo on the property. The 3-D software showed the relationship between the development potential if the change were approved vs. the surrounding properties of single story dwellings. But no good, they approved it anyway (3-2 vote). During the break, the chairperson approached the development services director and me and said: "don't ever do that again, it puts us in a bad spot." Proponents told us it was a cheap shot while opponents said it supported staff's (mine) original recommendation of denial to the planning commission.

    I don't know why, but I still like the work. Good thing I have think skin. Wine tonight.

    Definitely wine after that - maybe cognac. You were basically told by the chair not to do a thorough analysis or provide information to support your conclusion? Yeesh.

    Yep. Jug's half gone. Cognac is a weekend thing....though I'm more partial to gin. At least they didn't fillet my a$$ in public.....

    Edit...and we're doing it Thursday for our planning commission meeting, too. This will be fun.
