The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), recognizing the value of 3D modeling and Planning Decision Support Systems (PDSS) as well as the challenges involved with implementing these tools, issued an RFP for a “Plan for Capacity Building Using 3D Modeling Applications & Planning Decision Support Systems” for the Prince George’s County Planning Department. The RFP stipulated that the Plan included an in-depth needs assessment of the Department, an evaluation of available tools, and a survey documenting the use of 3D modeling and PDSS tools by other planning departments across the nation. As a resource for other planning agencies, the first half of the report is available for download using the links below. The posted chapters summarize the findings and recommendations of the report (Chapter 1), give an overview of the methodology used (Chapter 2), document the results and findings of the national online survey and agency interviews (Chapter 3), and describe and evaluate many of the leading tools in the industry (as of early 2010, Chapter 4).
