How to design cities for resilience

By Dassault Systèmes

As climate change poses risks to coastal cities, planners can harness 3D simulation to imagine future scenarios and make decisions accordingly.

With the majority of the world’s cities located on coastal waterways, cities are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change and rising sea levels. It is all the more important for planners to look ahead a few decades, to build for resilience today.

Cities are increasingly turning to 3D visualisation. This type of modelling capability presents a compelling opportunity to create entirely virtual urban environments and objects, each of which can hold real-time data.

In the virtual world, cities can easily simulate the effects of extreme weather events such as floods on buildings, utility networks, mobility systems and other infrastructure.
