BOGI (Best of GIS Images) 2nd Prize winner in GISWorld/GIS Europe Magazines. These two images illustrate a site in theSwiss Alps where a proposed lake level change is under investigation.The second Image shows the after intervention change. These imageswere constructed on Silicon Graphics VGX workstations running theCLR's PolyTRIM software with inputs from Arc/Info (DEM and lake),AutoCAD (Dam Models), and Ortho-corrected Aerial Photography togetherwith Rodney Hoinkes, Centre for Landscape Research, University ofToronto.
