Learning outcomes of the course unit:
After completion of the course the student will obtain theoretical knowledge of specialized CAD/GIS systems within the Garden and Landscape Architecture, will master the process of digital terrain/landscape modeling, will be able to analyse the DTM and to create a conceptual landscape model. The graduate will achieve a basic knowledge and skills for practical usage of terrestrial laser scanning and close-range photogrammetry to landscape model acquisition.
Course contents:
The course is applied discipline aimed on usage of information technologies in the field of Garden and Landscape Architecture. The course is based on application of a specialized software (EaglePoint Landcadd, HDS-Cyclone, etc.). The teaching process includes: 1. Input data collection (vector and raster data) for digital landscape modeling of specified case study; 2. CAD-modeling and GIS site-analysis of the area of interest; 3. Computer-aided Conceptual Landscape Modeling a 4. Statical and dynamical representation of digital landscape model.
