What is CityEngine?

CityEngine is a software program created by Esri. The program is designed to generate models based off a series of commands. This allows you to create city models quickly and easily without having to manually edit every model. CityEngine also allows you to connect your ArcGIS Online account via desktop application (Step 8). You will not be able to access CityEngine directly from the ArcGIS Online Website (as you would be able to for Business Analyst of StoryMap) for this download. Learn more about CityEngine.
