CityEngine 2015.2

The latest release of CityEngine is out! For those using CityEngine on a daily basis I would recommend installing this as soon as possible.  Remember you can install multiple versions of CityEngine on the same PC.   Import/copy your existing projects into the new CityEngine 2015.2 workspace don’t just link to the previous workspace though.

Of particular interest to me was the improved KML support, it seems that I can export out from a scene in BNG to kml without positional errors now.  Also the new ‘dashboards’ feature is interesting, but you’ll need to rethink your reporting to make full use of this!

You can download the new release from your MyEsri account area as usual, but to read more about it click here.
