Analyzing and evaluating a design is an essential part of an iterative design process to ensure that qualitative and quantitative requirements are met. CityEngine includes a variety of tools for this.


Visualize quantitative information about CGA models using real-time charts. See Use dashboards for more information.


You can create multiple variations, or scenarios, of a design proposal in one scene. Dashboards are scenario aware and can display data from multiple scenarios at once.

Measurement tools

Measure distances and areas in 3D.

Visibility analysis

Create Viewsheds and View Domes to identify areas that are visible or invisible from a given viewpoint interactively. Create a View Corridor to identify geometry that blocks the view. See Visibility analysis for more information.
