The design of any city is the concrete expression of our cumulative impact on the landscape. As growing organisms, municipalities evolve their relative social, economic and environmental health. How can planners use big data, modelling and forecasting to assess the future consequence of planning decisions? This presentation will build off of work done with the Edmonton Metro Panel where the future implications of planning decisions are forecast into the future. The presentation will display video models of the changing metropolitan landscape of Edmonton from 1910 forward to 2060.

Presented by Mr. Thom Stubbs and Dr. Brad Stelfox
