Landscape Institute Visualisation Guidance – What is it?

2B has had a major role in the production of LI TGN 06/19 Visual Representation of Development Proposals: a guide for landscape professionals, planning officers and other stakeholders to select types of visualisations which are appropriate to the circumstances in which they are used. It provides guidance as to appropriate techniques to capture site photography and produce appropriate visualisations.

It was published on the 17 September 2019 in support of GLVIA3 after an extensive process and consultation with LI members and technical experts.

Bill - visualisation training

As Vice Chair of the LI Technical Committee, Bill took a leading role in the production of the guidance, chairing the appointed working group of technical experts experienced in photography, photomontage and landscape and visual impact assessment. Bill handled much of the writing, graphics and document compilation. The process took around three years: a major consultation exercise in 2018 helped to shape the final document, with 'proportionality' being the major principle running through the necessary technical details.
