URSULA visualisation videos Posted: 19/11/2012

URSULA used computer visualisation technology to communicate alternative designs for a riverside case study in the centre of Sheffield. To do this computer models were built which incoporated the different design elements of each development option. These enable the viewers to intuitively get a feel for the different options, an advantage over maps which are more abstract, requiring mental interpretation. Computer visualisations can be presented in a number of ways, including as static images and as videos. One used during URSULA were 'walk through' visualisations which can be navigated like a landscape in a computer game, and can even be viewed in 3D. By clicking the two images below you can view two alternative designs for River Wickerside in the centre of Sheffield.
