Land8 Webinar: Creating Sustainable Sites using CAD
Presented by: Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.
February 12th from 2-3 pm PST
CAD programs have the ability to extract data from simple geometry, such as lines and polygons. However, with the right software tools, you can also create, model, and present within one application, as well as analyze, report, and select materials more appropriately.
The intuitive processes mentioned in this session will address the Areas of Focus, such as soils, hydrology, vegetation, materials, and human well-being, as proposed in the Sustainable Sites Initiative: Guidelines and Performance Benchmarks 2009 by the Sustainable Sites Initiative.
Understand the five Areas of Focus as proposed by the Sustainable Sites Initiative.
- Learn how purpose-built site analysis tools, such as Digital Terrain Modeling (DTM) and GIS file integration, can make conceptual and preliminary site plans easier to design.
- Learn how tools, including the multifaceted Landscape Area Object, Site Modifier Objects, 2D/3D Plant Data Objects, Plant Database, Solar Animation, Custom Reports, and many others, can be essential in meeting the expectations of a sustainable site.
-This session qualifies for LA CES Credit. Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. is an approved provider of the Landscape Architect Continuing Education System.
