Digital Landscape Visualisation

The aim of the course is to provide training in different methods for landscape visualisation in landscape design and planning and, through a range of examples and references, create a broad understanding of the possibilities and limitations of digital visualisation within landscape architecture and spatial planning.

After having completed the course, the student should:

- be able to use digital tools for 3D modelling, picture editing and presentation in order to allow the landscape to be visualised in different stages of the design and planning process.

- have a basic understanding of the technology behind 3D modelling and digital pictures

- have good theoretical knowledge of visual communication

- have up-to-date knowledge of how digital tools are used for visualising the landscape nationally and internationally

- be able to critically appraise the use of digital tools for visualising the landscape
