Familiarity with ground modeling is an indispensable prerequisite for landscape architects; they have to use contour lines in their designs, quickly develop alternatives, and check alternative options regarding design, ecology, economy, and technical feasibility. The third edition contains essential updated information on BIM construction in landscape architecture, 3D machine control, and BIM in practice. Furthermore, the book provides in-depth information on forms of terrain, scales, interpolation, geodetic points, contour lines, how to calculate the volume of land mass, and includes subjects such as slope stabilization systems and ground modeling on the building site. Included is also the ground modeling of roads and parking lots, and a revised section on stormwater management. Numerous practical examples are included in the task section to help apply the theory.
