Introduction

Full description: 

Prospective is developing an integrated urban forecasting platform that will transform the way cities are designed, built and managed. Our technology will enable governments, businesses and communities to foresee the impact of changes to city systems and plan alternative futures.

Our forecasting platform integrates data on all aspects of city life.

We collate detailed information on macro and micro economic conditions, physical and social infrastructure, built form and development patterns, transport and mobility data, economic activity and market trajectories, public policy, socio-demographics and environmental conditions.​

We maximise the value of data by combining it into a detailed spatial model of the economy. We apply advanced complex systems modelling and machine learning methods.to measure the interdependencies between urban activities.​

Our models enable decision makers to explore the impacts of different design, policy, management and investment scenarios across a wide range of performance criteria.

Our Products are built for application on a massive scale 

We are building a general purpose cloud platform for urban forecasting to scale applications for use in valuable new areas of city decision making. Our platform will:​

Tackle previously intractable spatial modelling problems

Produce forecasts of unprecedented accuracy, scale and resolution

Enable clients to run thousands of scenarios and explore alternative futures.

We deliver industry specific decision support systems powered by a single integrated forecasting platform

We're developing tailored products for a range of industries including planning and architecture, real estate development, transport and logistics, retail and marketing, investment and insurance.​

Our solutions will enable public and private sector organisations to optimise property design, development and investment processes, streamline service provision and improve transport and infrastructure operations.
