Abstract—Public participation is very important to the success for urban planning projects. This study tries to establish two different systems, the 3-dimensional digital model and the 360 panoramic QTVR photos models, to simulate the feasibility and effectiveness of the participants' experiences feedback got from both environments, by the case study area of Hangzhou CBD, Zhejiang Province, China. This study used Logistic Model to calculate the parameters and their significance to understand if the participant would be interested or not. The results showed that different age/gender people would be impacted by different indicators. It is also found that both QTVR system and 3D system have advantages and disadvantages for representing the indicators' characteristics for participants.

Index Terms—Effectiveness assessment, urban planning, virtual reality environments, 360 panoramic simulations.
