|Abstract: ||Rapidly increasing urban populations are placing
increased pressure on social, economic and environmental
resources. For our cities to cope with this demand we
must ensure that any growth is sustainable. Tools already
exist which attempt to support sustainable urban decision
making. However, as previous work by the authors shows,
many of these existing tools fail to either adequately
engage all possible stakeholders or represent fully all the
complex interactions between the aspects of
This paper describes the underlying concepts of a
prototype simulation and visualisation tool (S-City VT)
that will allow all stakeholders, regardless of background
or experience, to understand, interact with and influence
decisions made on the sustainability of urban design.
Using the Dundee Waterfront Development Project as a
case study, S-City VT takes the unique approach of
combining computer game technology with computer
modelling to present the stakeholder with an interactive
Initial results highlight the viability of virtual
representations of proposed real-world structures and also
effectiveness of the specific visualisation techniques used
in conveying urban sustainability information.|
