Virtual NewcastleGateshead

Virtual NewcastleGateshead (VNG) is a joint venture between Northumbria University, Newcastle City Council and Gateshead Council to create a three-dimensional digital model of the urban core areas of both Newcastle and Gateshead.

As part of the urban planning process VNG provides a more effective and efficient communication tool, offering a unique opportunity to developers and architects, with the means to accurately assess the impact of design proposals within their urban context.

The aim of the VNG project has been from the outset to seek ways to create one definitive, accurate, interactive model, with the potential to be used by a range of stakeholders, for a range of applications relevant to city design and management, with the aim to place Virtual NewcastleGateshead at the forefront of virtual city modelling.
