Abstract

The explosion of information technology (and especially in the areas of GIS and Remote Sensing development) is having a significant impact on the quality and effectiveness of natural resource analysis and planning. Incorporated into the information technology boom are new and exciting ways to realistically capture and manipulate digital data to enhance our visual understanding of various resource planning and design decisions. Work undertaken in university environments is assisting in the research and development aspects of applying GIS technology and image capture capabilities to the visualization and management of natural resources, and Ball State University is no exception. This paper provides a comprehensive summary of research work undertaken in Ball State University's Computer Graphics Laboratory that not only incorporates public values in the planning process but also develops innovative technologically based methods to assist planners in analyzing, assessing and simulating landscape scenery.
