|Abstract: ||This paper presents the results of an initial application of a prototype simulation and visualisation tool (S-City VT) thatwas
developed to enable all stakeholders, regardless of background or experience, to understand, interact with and influence
decisions made on the sustainability of urban design. The tool takes the unique approach of combining three-dimensional
(3D) interactive and immersive technologies with computer modelling to present stakeholders with an interactive virtual
development. Use of outputs from the model and a 3D visualisation of the development can help decision-makers judge
the relative sustainability of different aspects of a development. The tool employs a number of different methods to
present sustainability results to stakeholders. Initial tests on the effectiveness of the different visualisation methods are
described and discussed. The paper then presents some conclusions on further development and application of the tool to
model and visualise possible results of decisions made at different stages of the project.|
