With today's technology we can easily combine the
speed of computing with the elegance of drawing.

landscape analysis and mapping. But, while
they are evolving quickly, applications
such as QGIS and ArcGIS still only produce
cold renders. By going back to basics and
hand-drawing our regional landscape
maps with coloured pencils, we reap some
benefits: we can grasp the landscape's
character more readily, and it is simply a
pleasure. Next, we digitize the coloured
map, georeference it on a digital terrain
model and edit multiple shapefile layers,
such as roads and toponyms. The result is a
map far more revealing and personal than it
would otherwise have been.

The block diagram
The block diagram is a standard tool
for revealing landscape tendencies. In
the GIS era, we can generate one in a
few seconds. However, aerial imagery
alone is too crude; we need to be able
to select which information to show in
order to make the diagram's message
clear. Superimposing a digitized handdrawn sketch on a computer graphic,
along with a few edits in software
such as Adobe Photoshop, makes it
possible to identify dynamic features.
We can also add annotations to provide

appropriate context. We can even indulge
in a few graphic flourishes, for example by
depicting the flora or fauna the landscape
supports. The possibilities are endless.

The sketch
The landscape architect's oldest tool is
the sketch: it reveals the landscape at its
most intimate. We are an old-school team.
We love our sketchbooks, and we take
them with us whenever we go out in the
field. Back at the office, the scanner is our
best friend. Among other things, we use
it for digitizing watercolour textures - it
is a great pleasure to incorporate them
into our sketches. A few clicks, a mask
and a clone stamp later, and we've given
our rendering of the landscape a new
atmosphere.
It's often said that the computerization of
landscape architecture leads to generic
renderings. On the contrary, we believe
it opens the door to subtle, characterful
expressions.
