CanVis: Photorealistic Visualization
This publication provides instructions for using CanVis photorealistic visualization software developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency and the National Agroforestry Center. This free software allows users to visualize changes made to yards, gardens, and other landscapes by using photographic simulation. Users can test the way a landscape design looks before picking up a shovel! CanVis is similar to Photoshop, but it’s easier to pick up. Exercises in this article will help beginners become familiar with the software.
