With this migration comes a myriad of challenges, notably the exponential rise in land costs and the often haphazard nature of urban development.

Building the Urban Impact Analyzer: Behind the Scenes

To bring this app to life, we employed a variety of backend tools including Grasshopper, Urbano, Rhino Compute, Vue.Js, and Three.Js.


Our journey begins by establishing a foundational Grasshopper file using Urbano, which facilitates data extraction from Open Source Maps. This data undergoes refinement through various Grasshopper components, transforming it into a comprehensible format. Once processed, the data is analyzed to provide easily digestible results, even for those without technical expertise.

Hops Script testing
Vue.Js + Three.Js

After verifying the functionality of our script through Hops Script testing, we transition to UI/UX development using Vue.Js and Three.Js. These frontend technologies ensure a seamless and engaging user experience.
