SDG develops an Urban Dynamic Model

15 March 2018

Transport and land use models are considered large, expensive beasts that take ages to run and deliver answers that have to be interpreted by experts, but that is not necessarily true. Steer Davies Gleave has developed an online version of our Urban and Regional Dynamic Models (UDM & RDM) that is adaptable, easy to use and runs in seconds. The UDM was built to help answer big questions about how to invest in major infrastructure like transport, housing or commercial development to best support the economy of a town, city or region.
