Urban Programmatic Distribution System - The 3d version

This video is an earlier version of the Urban Distribution System that was finally used in denCity. This version could do a 3d representation of the FAR & height maps which made better eye-candy, but didn't have features like the coastline change, pedestrian walkability zones, street patterns, etc. that was finally coded into the final version. It ultimately became so complicated and processing intensive that we had to discard the 3d ability just for the sake of sanity.
