Teaching in planning through technology

VU.CITY: transforming teaching in planning through technology

Responding to an increasingly digitised world, VU.CITY is helping to bridge the knowledge gap between traditional planning and the rapidly modernising system beginning to emerge. Professional bodies such as the Royal Town Planning Institute now recognise digital planning skills as part of their Core Competency Framework – a sure sign that planning is on the cusp of becoming digital. To smooth the transition from a culture of paper to a culture of digital, QUB has committed to using VU.CITY – the world’s largest, most accurate smart city platform – as the medium through which to prepare Planners for the future of their profession: digital planning and digital decision making.

Planning into the community

VU.CITY bringing planning into the community

We recently received funding from the Geospatial Commission for the development of an app that will enable anyone to see the buildings that are proposed in their area. The app will also allow them to comment on the plans. And it will provide access to a whole range of information about existing buildings – gathered from the public.

It is for this reason that we are driven by the needs of the end-user, whether that is planners, developers, architects, local authorities – even the general public.
