Abstract

The Digital Phoenix project is a multiyear project aimed at developing a realistic digital representation of the Phoenix metropolitan area through space and time that can be experienced in Arizona State University's Decision Theater. A significant objective of this project is to create an environment for querying, researching, and visualizing critical issues confronting a rapidly urbanizing area about urban sustainability. By creating a multidimensional virtual model of Phoenix from a variety of data sources, we can visualize patterns of growth and development, as well as their consequences emerging across the continuums of space and time. The modeling of future environments will enable the assessment of policy scenarios and guide desired future urban-environmental patterns. A digitally constructed model of the city will also allow us to discover what Phoenix could have been like, starting with historical data as the basis for projecting to the present and into the future.
