When a project for structural development is started, the most important thing to be addressed is the possible visual impacts. As most of the people have no enough knowledge on these impacts, these are analyses technically by the professionals, who are able to give you Landscape Visual Impact Report. The processes, which are undergone by these experts, are described here.
Collection of information on the project
At the foremost stage, planner makes a project description and creates a plan, which presents topographic and physical modifications.
Viewshed of your project
Viewshed indicates a region, from where the site or activities of the project can be monitored. This is developed to make the visual background of the project. At this point, the planner makes use of computer-based analysis in order to have a proper idea of viewshed. However, the expert also goes to the site for viewing at everything that may be observed.
Make out all receptors which are in the boundary of viewshed
With the use of some guidelines, planner finds out all the designated highways. However, he also detects different houses, residential and public.
Evaluate the visual look at present condition
Planner analyses the present visual standard for every viewpoint of the receptor. In fact, there’s no process, which has been established to rate the visual excellence. Thus, the assessment of the impact may depend on good method of federal agency.
Make some reproductions of image
Here, the expert develops simulation of photos of a planned project. Such simulation helps in the assessment of the impact. In order to do it, planner generates a 3-D model for projected plan. Such model may also be split into a variety of versions as well as comparisons. Photographs are captured at every location to create a practical look with texture and colour.
Develop the measures of mitigation for the possible impacts
While any of the significant effects have been found, landscape planning specialists assess whether something is possible to be alleviated. If needed, proper measures of mitigations may be developed in order that the possible significant effect may be decreased.
Preparation of report
This is the ultimate stage, when a planner gets a report ready for outlining all facts as well as the important findings.
So, with all the above procedures, a professional planner develops a perfect report and provides it to you to get a clear idea about visual impact.
