Case Studies in Computer-Aided Visual Impact Analysis

  • A. H. Bridges


The aesthetic effect of any new development on its surroundings, whether a new shop in an historic urban setting, or a powerstation in unspoilt countryside, is always a contentious issue. This is not solely due to the merits (or otherwise) of the proposed development, but rather the underdeveloped state of objective visual appraisal. The accuracy and realism of traditional visual assessment methods are known to be questionable and new techniques which can clearly present visual evidences in sufficient detail and with known levels of accuracy are only slowly replacing them.
