An Online Landscape Object Library to Support Interactive Landscape Planning

The following post is by Chris Pettit from the ISPRS WG II/6 blog and follows up with Philip Paar´s post about the Future Internet Special Issue "Landscape":

The sixth of a series of papers as part of a special issue of the Open AccessJournal Future Internet on the theme “Internet and Landscapes“, as edited by the ISPRS Working II/6 on Geographical Visualization and Virtual Reality (Chris Pettit and Arzu Coltekin) has now been published by  Subhash Sharma, Chris Pettit, Ian Bishop, Pang Chan and Falak Sheth. This paper examines how geo-visualisation tools can provide useful participatory planning support in addressing issues of land productivity and sustainability. The research team have developed an online landscape library, which has been integrated with a suite of geo-visualisation tools including a GIS based Landscape Constructor tool, a modified version of a 3D game engine SIEVE (Spatial Information Exploration and Visualisation Environment) and an interactive touch table display. The paper includes some preliminary evaluation of the tools and outlines some further research directions. The full manuscript can be accessed via the journal through the following link:
