11.328J Urban Design Skills: Observing, Interpreting, and Representing the City (MIT)
The course is designed to be an introduction to methods of analyzing, evaluating, and recording the urban environment first hand. Its aim is to supplement existing courses that cover theory and history of city design and planning and to better prepare students without prior design background for the studio sequence.
11.201 Gateway: Planning Action (MIT)
This class introduces first semester MCP students to the persistent themes and challenges facing planners. The goals of this class are: to excite students about their chosen profession; to offer a theoretical framework for thinking about the kinds of interventions that planners are expected to take; to introduce students to some of the most interesting and challenging theoretical debates in the planning field; and to press students to think about the best way of using their time to ensure their
Article :: Building Adobe WorkflowLab, Part 2: Planning for the Design of WorkflowLab
Continuing their series on the design and creation of WorkflowLab, Aaron Pedersen, James Polanco, and Doug Winnie, the authors of Adobe Flash Platform from Start to Finish: Working Collaboratively Using Adobe Creative Suite 5, discuss how they captured lightning in a bottle, focusing on planning ahead before doing any of the production work.
Site and Urban Systems Planning, Spring 2002
The planning of sites and the infrastructure systems which serve them. Site analysis, spatial organization of uses on sites, design of roadways and subdivision patterns, grading plans, utility systems, analysis of runoff, parking requirements, traffic and off-site impacts, landscaping. Lectures on analytical techniques and examples of good site-planning practice. Assignments on each aspect of subject. The Site and Urban Systems Planning course provides a unique opportunity to engage in the explo
Article :: Taking Advantage of Layer Strategies in Adobe Illustrator CS5
Whether you want to create multiple versions of a single object or you're building incredibly complex artwork, layers can be very helpful for controlling and keeping track of your Illustrator art objects and documents. Brian Wood, contributor to Adobe Illustrator CS5 Classroom in a Book, demonstrates strategies for making layers really useful.
11.202 Gateway: Planning Economics (MIT)
Planning Economics (11.202) is a course that runs for the last one-third of a semester and covers economics topics of particular interest to city planning students: location theory, the interplay between externalities and zoning, international trade and globalization, and housing finance. Few incoming students have had prior exposure to these topics.The first two-thirds of the semester is given over to Microeconomics (11.203). It is designed for incoming city planning students with little or no
11.204 Planning, Communications, and Digital Media (MIT)
This course focuses on methods of digital visualization and communication and their application to planning issues. Lectures will introduce a variety of methods for describing or representing a place and its residents, for simulating changes, for presenting visions of the future, and for engaging multiple actors in the process of guiding action. Through a series of laboratory exercises, students will apply these methods in the construction of a web-based portfolio. The portfolio is not only the
11.380J Urban Transportation Planning (MIT)
This class is an introduction to planning transportation in metropolitan areas. The approach, while rooted on the analytical tools which estimate outcomes and alternatives, is holistic. This means starting from a scan of the site, its history and its current trends, in order to frame properly the problem, including the relevant actors, institutions, roles and interests. The design and evaluation of alternatives considers this complexity, in addition to construction, operation and maint
11.360 Community Growth and Land Use Planning (MIT)
This subject explores the techniques, processes, and personal and professional skills required to effectively manage growth and land use change. While primarily focused on the planning practice in the United States, the principles and techniques reviewed and presented may have international application. This course is not for bystanders; it is designed for those who wish to become actively involved or exposed to the planning discipline and profession as it is practiced today, and as it may need
1.203J Logistical and Transportation Planning Methods (MIT)
The class will cover quantitative techniques of Operations Research with emphasis on applications in transportation systems analysis (urban, air, ocean, highway, pick-up and delivery systems) and in the planning and design of logistically oriented urban service systems (e.g., fire and police departments, emergency medical services, emergency repair services). It presents a unified study of functions of random variables, geometrical probability, multi-server queueing theory, spatial location theo
Public Transportation Service and Operations Planning, Fall 2003
This course describes the evolution and role of urban public transportation modes, systems, and services, focusing on bus and rail. Technological characteristics and their impacts on capacity, service quality, and cost are described. Current practice and new methods for data collection and analysis, performance monitoring, route design, frequency determination, and vehicle and crew scheduling are also discussed. In addition, the effect of pricing policy and service quality on ridership and metho
1.206J Airline Schedule Planning (MIT)
Explores a variety of models and optimization techniques for the solution of airline schedule planning and operations problems. Schedule design, fleet assignment, aircraft maintenance routing, crew scheduling, passenger mix, and other topics are covered. Recent models and algorithms addressing issues of model integration, robustness, and operations recovery are introduced. Modeling and solution techniques designed specifically for large-scale problems, and state-of-the-art applications of these
