3D Digital Model: City of San Luis Obispo
Cal Poly (SLO) City and Regional Planning Department has recently developed a digital three-dimensional model of the City of San Luis Obispo, with a high level of detail in the core downtown area. The model enables users to view and analyze the existing state of the city as well as proposals. Architectural compatibility, viewsheds, shades / shadows, streetscapes can now be analyzed in precision, empowering city staff and community members to make better-informed decisions. If you are interested in developing a similar digital three-dimensional model for your community and enhancing your decision-making capabilities while involving your community members, please email the CRP Department.
