    Use of CommunityViz for planning

    Does anyone have experience to work with the software CommunityViz (a GIS based decsion support system): http://placeways.com/communityviz/index.php

    We are using this software for our students - I was wondering whether it is used in planning departments?

    Hello, I know these software:

    Bionatics - LandSim 3D
    VTerrain
    and your
    CommunityViz

    There are many software like ScketchUp e Blender ...

    But for real land use planning and not for only visualization, I think there isn't a very solution, because You can develop a seious database (like PostGIS), that can manage data/geodata/3D data and after choose the right software for visualize it...

    I will suggest to the CityGML documentation page, for virtual 3D city models

    I think most people see it more as an academic software than something generally used by practicing planners. Around here there are no communities using it, and no consultants that I know are using it either.
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    Thanks for the comments - knowing the software (for education purposes) I would believe that it could be rather useful tool for developing planning scenarios. And I believe it is also used in some planning agencies/departments. I still would be interested to find some more real application examples which we could use for education???

    We're actually using with a consultant to do our open space program. I'm not directly involved, so I'm not sure of the details.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Would you have a web-link to any results which where produced which we could use as reference material for education?

    You want a 3D graphic software that can manage a community planning or a generic software specialized in a community and land use plannning ... for education?
