To supplement the base SmartCode and to respond to climate change imperatives, CATS has commissioned numerous transect-based Modules from prominent New Urbanist practitioners. Most Modules are annotated with advice for calibration. The downloads below are free and open source. Adobe PDF files are provided in spreads for screen viewing as well as in single pages for two-sided or code-only printing. Editable InDesign files are provided with all links. Font names are listed in the Instructions file. Text (not tables) will be provided in Word on request, and will be posted here as they are completed.
