Format: Paperback
I have found Modeling the Environment to be a unique and invaluable resource for landscape architecture students in understanding computer visualization. As a landscape architecture instructor who has taught 3D Landscape Modeling courses for more than seven years, I particularly value the step-by-step tutorials that are included in almost every chapter of the book. One particularly valuable chapter for my students has been the one focused on topography. Many of my students have struggled with this topic. Since bringing this book into my classroom, my students have been able to master the topic much more quickly and expertly. The book also does an excellent job of introducing material use, lighting, image composition, and animation. In addition to the book's technical instruction, it also delves into methods for incorporating computer visualization into the workflow of landscape architects. The book is also connected to a helpful resource website, [...] which provides additional tutorials, forums, and other materials to help both teachers and students. It's a great book and I highly recommend it for 3D visualization classes in landscape architecture programs and landscape architects who aim to excel in 3D representation.

This text was disappointing. There is a general lack of good books on natural environment modeling and texturing techniques for film and 3D illustration, as a result I was looking forward to this purchase. The index preview looked promising, unfortunately nothing new beyond the most basic concepts. Use displacement maps for terrains, learn to model a tree branch with poly extrude, use billboard for background trees, etc. All this info is available for free on the net. On a positive note, the kindle edition is very well done, the illustrations are plaisant, and the text easy to read. If you are a beginner and have $50 burning your pocket go for it.

The book is too academic for my expectation. Im looking for a more of a kind instructional book on this matter.
