Terrain Modelling in Digital Landscape Design

This web portal on terrain modelling has been created at Forest and Landscape, University of Copenhagen by landscape architects José Lameiras and Ian Jørgensen. Both have a background teaching IT in landscape architecture. Focus is on digital technologies to interact with surface models and develop landscape design. So, this is about LIM – Landscape Information Modelling as a response to architect’s BIM (Building IM).
