At the end of this course, participants will understand the basic land use forecasting workflows that can be completed using the UrbanSim Cloud Platform, as illustrated by a set of case studies. In this course, we use the platform to complete forecast-related workflows related to tracking and inserting development projects, inputting development constraint information, composing scenarios, evaluating simulation results, and comparing differences between scenarios and over time. Examples in this course will be drawn from the Minneapolis-St. Paul region, and participants are encouraged to follow along with a trial instance of the platform.
