  • The Town of Cary employed photographic simulations in four separate comprehensive planning projects during the period 2000-2003. The four projects covered a range of downtown, suburban and rural planning environments within Cary's planning jurisdiction, making Cary 's experience applicable to most types of local jurisdictions. This paper describes how photographic simulation was used in three of these planning projects, and evaluates the effectiveness, tips, and lessons learned for each project.
