    Description

    The aesthetics of clearcut units potentially visible from a distance can be improved by judicious design. Screening clearcuts from view or shaping them to characterize natural openings are current methods used for this purpose.

    Perspective plots illustrating how proposed clearcut units will look from specific off-site viewing points provide an appropriate means of evaluating how well the units meet desired visual objectives. This procedure has been automated on a desk-top computer system using digitizer, plotting peripherals, and topographic maps. The explanations, listings, and logic are included in this report.
