First test of the micro topography tool. This tool highlight the topography on areas which seem completely flat at the first look. Two colors are used. Blue for the area in contact with the water table and green for the areas above the water table. The most useful image is the combination of the blue-green color code and the aerial puncture.
The strategy of the design is to dig the ground in the blue area and to use the ground material to raise the terrain in the green area. Basically we raise the ground level by creating lakes.
We projected the images on a sand model of the terrain. This procedure allow us to simulate the ground shifting.
