Most people learn best through viewing pictures or video, or other non-verbal methods because the brain can quickly process visual information. Photorealistic visualization helps to communicate landscape change and can be used to demonstrate a tree pruning outcome, illustrate the intent of a vegetation ordinance, planning home gardens, and other applications. This presentation teaches about using CanVis, a free software simple enough for users with basic computer skills to manipulate objects and images that can help them to plan and understand green infrastructure design. Participants will learn how to access the software, what to use it for, and tricks to make a good project.
