Hey Urban team! Would anyone happen to know her have exposure to 3D wind analysis, either using Urban or ArcGIS Pro? This is a rather unique request I received today, a type of model I have never heard of being used in our applications - as of yet. Any tips or insight would be greatly appreciated! The customer mentioned this being shown in the 'Markham web scene example' - I believe from one of the most recent UCs?

Hi Hannah,

Thank you for your question. 
Are you looking for someone who has experience with 3d wind analysis using esri software or are you searching for a specific wind analysis model? 

ArcGIS Urban offers a broad set of tools to faciltate urban planning workflows. It allows you to visualize development projects in the context of the built environment and also acts as a platform to facilitate public engagement. Whereas you can quantify and analyze the impact of planning measures, ArcGIS Urban currently doesn't offer tools for 3D wind analysis.

Thanks,
Dominik

Hi Dominik,

Thank you for your response! I'm not looking for a specific wind analysis model, just to speak with someone who may have experience mapping wind analysis with either ArcGIS Urban or ArcGIS Pro. Personally I've never heard of this sort of use case, (how might someone plot wind other than perhaps isobars or show barometric pressure?), I'm just reaching out in hopes that there may be someone who's done something like this before.

Thanks again,

Hi Hannah,

Thank you for clarifying what you are actually looking for. I asked some people in our office here in Zurich but I couldn't find anyone who has a broad experience in wind analysis mapping. 

Maybe you find some wind-mapping enthusiasts on the GeoNet space of ArcGIS Pro or on this GitHub repo: GitHub - Esri/wind-js: An demo animation of wind on a Canvas layer in the JSAPI 

Thanks,

Dominik

Hi Dominik,

I will definitely look into communicating with the geonet group when I have some time. Thank you for looking into this for me - it is greatly appreciated.

Have a great rest of your week!
