To reach next described grades of evaluation must be obtained at least appropriate number of points: the A grade - at least 93 points; the B grade - at least 86 points; the C grade - at least 79 points; the D grade - at least 72 points; the E grade - at least 64 points.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The aim of the course is to familiarize students with the methods of applied computer vector and bitmap graphics that are used in the process of developing projects in the garden and architectural profession. At the same time implies a qualitative shift in communication and presentation skills of students. Knowledge obtained in educational process will be practically applied on a case - study, which will be explained in detail in the exercises. The result of course is a comprehensive presentation prepared in printed output as well as in digital form.
Course contents:
Subject follows the subject Creation of Public and Recreation space in urban areas.
Modeling, Visualization and Presentation in Landscape Architecture "is applied discipline, a content of which is focused on the use of computer graphics in garden and landscape design. The course is based the application of bitmap and vector graphics editor (such as Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator, AutoCAD, EaglePoint, etc.). The learning process is divided into 3 phase. In the I-st phase 1 the student learns how to work with 2-dimensional space and create a two-dimensional planning documentation (landscaping drawings) with using the efficient (automated) elements of design (product database, automated bill of quantities, etc.).

The process of spatial modeling is includes the creation of visualization generated from 3d-object compositions. The techniques of visualization are applied on 3-D model to achieve adequate graphical output for the appropriate level detail.

The last stage of the course is oriented into the presentational forms that are used in presenting a semester project.
