Description

Landscape Visualisation: GIS Techniques for Planning & Environmental Management will form part of the Mastering GIS series, where the approach is to provide professional users of GIS with a one-stop-shop of information in specific areas. GIS-based landscape visualisation is a growing application area both in practice and for research. Such methods are being used by a range of people from consultants to students and from landscape architects to government agencies. Developments in both computer hardware and software now make it practical to produce such visualisations on the desktop and increasingly to present them on the Web. However, no book currently exists on how to use GIS data to produce effective and appropriate visualisations with the current technology. The emphasis of Landscape Visualisation: GIS Techniques for Planning & Environmental Management is on presenting new principles and methods to an audience already familiar with the basic concepts of GIS. Each chapter presents a separate visualisation technique and concludes with an overview of potential applications from a variety of planning and environmental management contexts. The content of Landscape Visualisation: GIS Techniques for Planning & Environmental Management is generic and therefore applicable to professionals and students worldwide. The examples and case studies take account of the international readership and are drawn from the UK, mainland Europe and the USA.
