of these public surveys will provide a basis for the assessment of the
project, and of the designs of the landscape itself. The surveys will
determine what design and environmental factors the public judge to enhance
or detract from the experience of visiting that particular site.
The greenspaces visualization also has the potential to assist with planning
and the urban design process. In addition to the changes of the physical
built structure of the city, visualization can reveal complex changes
of the environment, such as density of vegetation, growth patterns, and
seasonal dynamics of vegetation. By visualizing the dynamic qualities
of vegetation, detailed assessments and decisions can be made on issues
such as numbers and variations of trees, locations for plantings, and
the presence and location of different seasonal plants in a park.
