CTI Project 4D Sites. Image-based Combination of Spatial Data and Graphical Material

Test sites: Village of St. Moritz & UNESCO World Heritage Convent St. John Mustair

The observation of landscape development over time is one of the crucial factors for the research, analysis and the associated interventions in the field of landscape architecture and spatial planning. In the proposed project we explored new directions in the development of tools for the advanced perception and visualization of such landscape related phenomena. The developed tools contributed to a highquality planning. As one of the first institutes within Europe, the Institute of Landscape Architecture (ILA) followed an approach based on these techniques for large-scale landscape visualizations.
