Computer-Aided Visualization Meaningful Support in the Context of Urban Design
Environmental Simulation - New Impulses in Planning Processes [Proceedings of the 5th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 3-922602-85-1]
Concepts and ideas take shape in the head. Human beings think by relying on visual forms, they connect ideas and thoughts with images. Especially when we are dealing with complex processes, visualizations have always helped to increase our understanding of contents, to facilitate communication and thus to support cooperation. Communication and planning are not possible without real or imagined pictures or, as we prefer to say, images.This easily explains why computer-aided visualizations today are among the standard instruments in the field of construction and planning.
