The emergence of virtual reality and related tools is providing the fundamental infrastructure to begin building virtual cities which
can provide an interactive simulation and analysis environment for planning and management of urban places. The virtual city will provide urban managers with a computer environment to interface with the multitude of complex physical and social data needed to plan and manage cities, along with necessary tools to explore and analyse that data in meaningful and intuitive ways.

This paper looks at the applications of 3D Virtual reality (VR) in Urban management, its limitations and the future of 3D VR in urban management. The potential of visualisation in the planning and design of the built environment is very significant. The ability to represent, model and evaluate changes to the built environment on the computer desktop and over the Internet offers potential to enhance the planning and design process; and also help communicate ideas and developments to the public at large.
