Our Esri CityEngine Training Courses

Learn Advanced 3D City Design using Esri CityEngine

Garsdale Design conducts a variety of training courses from our home base in Sedbergh as well as Lancaster University.   We were the first to offer Esri CityEngine training worldwide, and we’ve been doing project work with it since 2009.  Since 2013 we have been conducting formal CityEngine training courses for a wide range of clients.

Garsdale Design is a proud Esri Silver Partner and EsriUK’s official CityEngine training provider here in the UK.   We also provide CityEngine training through worldwide with the help of our partners as well as Esri Distributors.

Esri CityEngine training options

Our standardised CityEngine training packages are either 2 or 3 days long.  We can train you here in Cumbria or we can locate nearer to you, or even train you ‘on-site’ in your offices.   Soon we will be able to offer online training as well.   Our courses follow a course outline but will often diverge on the afternoon of the second day to cover the client’s workflows and data.  Every CityEngine training session ends up being customised to the trainees requirements and we encourage you to bring your data and workflows.  

If you want more then we can customise even further for you.  We also offer a service to help you complete your first project as well!  

Each training session covers core usage of CityEngine, it’s a complicated program that works in a variety of industries and workflows so we take you step by step through CGA coding and publishing of a webscene with swipeable scenarios.  We also discuss strategies for data importing as well as data acquisition. 

We have trained planners, GIS professionals, academics, as well as people in the military and intelligence industries.

No one else knows Esri CityEngine like we do.

2-Day CityEngine for Professionals

The 2 day 3DPathFinder is more than just an introduction to CityEngine: Not only is this a hands-on practical course, it will give you a solid base in CGA coding, as well as a more advanced understanding of the inner workings of CityEngine.

3-Day CityEngine for Professionals ‘Plus’

The 3 day 3DPathFinder event covers the same content as the 2 day training. The additional day is used for focused work on client data and to find client-specific workflows and solutions. Most of our clients have opted for this training session.

CityEngine for: Military | Defence | Intelligence

It is hard writing procedural code for a project we know!   That’s why we’re currently (as of December 2018) in the process of producing ready made Esri CityEngine content, rule files, and libraries.  If you’re looking for something bespoke or specific use the contact form below.
