UrbanFootprint Web-Based Platform Built to Support Sustainable Urban Planning

What is UrbanFootprint?

UrbanFootprint is a web-based software platform built to help planners and policy makers determine the best scenarios and outcomes for their communities. It makes comprehensive data, alternative development tools, and analytical models accessible to public and private sector planners and designers.

Beginning in April 2018, the State of California will be partnering with UrbanFootprint to provide the latest version of the platform to California jurisdictions free-of-charge.
