visual impact assessment

Landscape assessment identifies key landscape values to assist in the development of landscape management strategies and design guidelines for future development within a site. Strategies will provide developers and stakeholders with guidelines that will ensure the appropriate management of landscape character and the retention of key landscape values. The process involves integrating the visual, cultural, biophysical and landscape values. The outcome is a narrative that gives meaning to the landscape which can inform the design and can provide a link to the history of the site, plus ameliorates the visual impacts.

Changes to the landscape are difficult to visualise due to the complexity and scale of landscapes and the layers of information they contain. CAD and GIS image processing techniques have helped Ecoscape develop powerful methods of creating and assessing landscape visualisations to overcome this challenge. The use of 3D allows the viewer to see and understand the changes to a landscape from any angle.
