Vista Viewshed Analysis using 3D Analyst, CityEngine & ArcGIS 360 VR
Authors: Amber Wittner
Forests are agricultural, recreational and green infrastructure. Over decades, designated scenic vista points along recreational corridors have had their views overgrown with vegetation. Prior to selecting which type of NEPA compliance the maintenance work would fall under, the volume and selection of trees to be removed had to be spatially identified. Vista viewshed analysis was conducted using 3D & Spatial Analysts and maintenance scenarios reviewed via CityEngine & ArcGIS 360VR technologies.
