SmarterBetterCities is a spin-off from the ETH Chair of Information Architecture, inspired by the NFP 65 Sustainable Urban Patterns (SUPat Project). Available for tablets, laptops and desktop computers, the CityEngine based software brings urban planning ideas to life with realistic visualization and decision-making solutions. The innovative web-based tool allows urban data to tell a story, with up-to-date analytics available in real-time. Sharing projects in 3D on the web is easily possible. This dynamic 3D platform will help to change the way we plan, design and manage cities. SmarterBetterCities was founded in 2013 and has expanded to the United States in 2015.
