but it’s far more than a picture or a map it’s one of the most sophisticated programs in the world for designing everything from housing estates to whole cities

On the 16th of September Martin Lewes (@martinlewes) from BBC Radio Cumbria came to visit our offices.   His interest was primarily in the local community broadband project called ‘FibreGarden’.   We had a chat about the work Garsdale Design Limited did and it’s exciting new working in 3D urban modelling using CityEngine.
