Description

Description

Congestion and greenhouse gas from private vehicles is a serious cause of worry, and many cities are turning to public transit to make sure citizens have safe, reliable, and regular access to their cities. Join us for this lab to learn how to use the InfraWorks software API (application programming interface) to create functionality that enables the planning and analysis of public-transit changes in a conceptual design environment. You will also learn how the InfraWorks software API can help determine the walkability of a neighborhood, the access to amenities, and the environmental impact of a route.
