GIS-BASED LANDSCAPE DESIGN RESEARCH

Landscape design research is important for cultivating spatial intelligence in landscape architecture. This study explores GIS (geographic information systems) as a tool for landscape design research – investigating landscape designs to understand them as architectonic compositions. The research aims to identify and illustrate the potential role of GIS as a tool in landscape design research, so as to provide insight into the possibilities and limitations of using GIS in this capacity.

VISUAL LANDSCAPE RESEARCH

Visual landscape research is an interdisciplinary approach that combines (a) landscape planning, design and management concepts, (b) landscape perception approaches, and (c) Geographic Information Science (GISc)-based methods and techniques. While integrating psychological knowledge of landscape perception, the technical considerations of geomatics, and methodology of landscape architecture and urban planning, it provides a solid basis for visual landscape assessment in cities, parks and rural areas.

FIELD INSTRUMENTS FOR DESIGN

This research focuses on the use of field instruments in landscape architecture. 3D Terrestrial laser scanning, point cloud technology, drones, eye tracking devices and other instruments are employed for advanced analysis for design. True-colour 3D laser scan Rosendael Park and Castle (Rozendaal, Netherlands). See more…
