A New Visibility Analysis Toolset
Track: Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
Authors: Brent Chamberlain, Mike Meitner
Viewsheds and visibility analyses are common GIS functions. These analyses are frequently used by landscape architects, resource planners, military personnel, and developers. While the standard viewshed analysis has been used for decades, much can still be improved. The toolset being presented produces visibility analyses that are human-centered as they draw from principles grounded on perception. Practical planning applications will be discussed and the full range of tools will be presented.
