Course description: In this unique course geared towards landscape applications we introduce a whole new integrated 3-dimensional design and modeling process.

Whether your preferred medium is pen and paper or a conventional 2-dimensional CAD program, the ability to work in 3 dimensions and view your work from all angles will undoubtedly enrich your creative design process. And the fluidity of non-static, 3-dimensional models will empower you to communicate your ideas to landscape decision makers who do not have the designer's ability to mentally project a 2-dimensional drawing into images of a real live landscape.

Here are some of the exciting, cutting edge techniques you will learn in this course:

  • Conventional presentation documents including a full set of 2-dimensional landscape plans
  • Computer-based presentations, slide shows and animations
  • Integration with imported design components, including base maps and construction elements
  • 3-dimensional landscape modeling
  • Terrain modeling
  • Integration with Excel spreadsheets and Word documents
  • Integration with Google maps

Who should consider this course?

  • Landscape designers and architects
  • Land planners
  • Educators
  • Anybody tired of drafting by hand!
