LEGION Model Builder

Pedestrian Modeling Software

Optimize Pedestrian Infrastructure

Build a precise model of your space that can be simulated and analyzed based on key inputs, such as design, demand, and operational data.

What is LEGION Model Builder?

LEGION Model Builder lets you build an accurate model of your planned populated infrastructure asset. Build railway stations, sports stadiums, airports, office complexes, theaters, piazzas, transport hubs, and virtually any other place where people converge. Import your specific design together with your most accurate estimate of anticipated demand and build your model to represent the best understanding of how your venue will be operated. 

LEGION Model Builder works with a range of computer-aided design (CAD) file formats. CAD commands allow you to quickly make simple design changes. Demand and operational data are imported from an easily auditable Excel data template. Model objects can be defined, reused, and shared across projects and teams. Easily assemble all this input into a single, clear holistic view to see how your planned infrastructure will perform when simulated with LEGION Simulator.

LEGION Simulator is required in addition to LEGION Model Builder in order to perform simulations and get results.

Create Simulation Models

  • Easily build and audit models with automated routing, increased intelligence, and simplified objects
  • Build models for any type of venue or building, such as sports facilities, urban and commercial buildings, and airports

Define Space Characteristics

  • Define the physical and operational characteristics of the pedestrian environment you need to test, for example, by designating areas where activities like waiting occur

Specify Population Parameters

  • Populate the model based on activities and characteristics such as size, speed, and personal preferences
