Planwisely is a fast and easy to use cloud-based mapping platform that enables urban planners, transport planners, community services planners and key decision-makers to gain insights into the urban form.

Planwisely is a one stop location that has integrated a vast number of data sets into their easy-to-use platform. Capturing data such as PT use, time to places of employment and education, traffic, census data as well as forecasting, make it a valuable tool when planning. The ability to create catchment areas that highlight on a map walking, cycling, car and PT travel times is extremely useful.

It also has the capability to include your own data sets which enables the user to maximise the program’s potential. The team are available for support, encourage feedback and look to work with you to get the most out of Planwisely.

Oliver Stoltz, Senior Sustainable Transport Planner, City of Casey

Planwisely has been great and I find that I’m using the tool on a daily basis. It’s got a seamless user interface, is extremely responsive, and has helped me deliver my work more efficiently.

The tool is jampacked with ‘planning essential’ layers including demographics, traffic volumes, public transport and land use. It’s been a fantastic tool so far and has become popular across my organisation.

Transport Planner, Victorian Local Council

I started using Planwisely about two months ago and have found it to be very helpful. It saves me time looking for data such as traffic data, school locations and so on. The catchment analysis function is valuable for when I need to do spatial analysis in certain areas. I also find it is very smooth to use when you add different layers at the same time.
