Urban planning processes affect a wide range of stakeholders including decision makers, urban planners, business companies as well as citizens. ICT-enabled tools supporting urban planning are considered key to successful and sustainable urban management. Based on previous work in the areas of web-based participation tools for urban planning, rule-based geospatial processing as well as 3D virtual reality applications we present a tool that supports experts from municipalities in planning and decision making but also provides a way for the public to engage in urban planning processes. The main contribution of this work is in the combination of 3D visualization and interaction components with a new ontology-driven rule editor based on domain-specific languages. The 3D visualization, on the one hand, enables stakeholders to present and discuss urban plans. On the other hand, the rule editor particularly targets expert users who need to perform spatial analyses on urban data or want to configure the 3D scene according to custom rules. Compared to previous approaches we propose a portable and interactive solution. Our tool is web-based and uses HTML5 technology making it accessible by a broad audience. 2 INTRODUCTION Involving stakeholders such as planners, architects, politicians, analysts, and citizens in urban planning is a challenging process. Today the demand from the public to influence major urban planning projects is growing. Internet-based communication facilities like social media or blogs are already popular for the discussion of urban planning projects by engaged citizens. Integrating these communication channels with a virtual reality application can help stakeholders to understand proposed actions as well as to illustrate anticipated impacts to a broader audience.
