    Description

    The concept of Visual Absorption Capability (VAC) is widely used by Forest Service Landscape Architects. The use of computer generated graphics can aid in combining times an area is seen, distance from observer and land aspect relative viewer; to determine visual magnitude. Perspective Plot allows both fast and inexpensive graphic analysis of VAC allocations, for project use.
