Tutorial Videos

INDICATE-Instructional Video 06 – Demonstrates how to carry out a simulation with the INDICATE tool and explains how both benchmark data and simulation data is used.


INDICATE-Instructional Video 05 – Discusses the Common City Index and the 30 indicators (8 Carbon Reduction, 14 Energy Efficiency, and 8 Cost Reduction) at the heart of the INDICATE tool. It shows how users can select specific indicators that are most relevant to the project at hand.


INDICATE-Instructional Video 04 – Explains how to copy elements, such as building or collection of buildings, into a new scene within INDICATE. This allows the user to focus on these elements, by turning off any adjacent objects, and investigating or modifying the objects as part of an energy analysis exercise.


INDICATE-Instructional Video 03 – Looks at the INDICATE dashboard and how to configure the dashboard to suit a particular project or specific needs.


INDICATE-Instructional Video 02 – Looks at the Inspector function and outlines how to use this function to examine various characteristics of a selected building including energy usage, building use, number of floors etc. 

INDICATE - Instructional Video 01 - Basic navigation, track rotate, zoom, object section, and working with layers in the scene
