"VU.CITY is not simply a 3D software offer, it's a four if not five dimensional space that incorporates live time and place capabilities. Going forward the synchronicity that VU.CITY provides to connect with other big data intelligence is an opportunity for urbanists to evidence with greater certainty, support for development or preservation initiatives."

“It’s great to be able to view context and emerging adjacent planning proposals and has excellent compatibility with our software, it’s literally plug and play. The detail of the model is quite amazing and the ability to accurately measure relationships of other buildings, topography, and datums is a key feature. The variety of views that can be created within the platform allows for multiple testing of design options, it's a great design tool and can save valuable time, I particularly like the ZTV feature.”

"Salford has a busy planning team, which manages a high number of large-scale developments. It is essential that the best form of development is secured on the right sites in the city, and to help with that we have been using VU.CITY. Being able to work with digital models within the VU.CITY platform has enabled the team to assess their impact more quickly from viewpoints of our choice."
