Viewshed Analysis Explained


What is a Viewshed Analysis?

A Viewshed Analysis is an assessment tool which determines the viewshed (the environment or context visible from a location) of your project. The analysis involves a process of identifying locations that are visible from one or more observer points. The analysis aids in understanding and identifying what locations a building can be seen from and if any views will be blocked as a result of a new development.  


What is the Purpose of a Viewshed Analysis?

The purpose of a Viewshed Analysis is to determine how visible your project may be from determined locations (or observer points). This analysis can be used to indicate a number of potential benefits and drawbacks including (but not limited to):

- Any disruptions your project poses to important views from a specified locations

- To ensure your project has sufficient privacy from various observer points

- To understand where your project can be seen from in the surrounding context

- To determine the most visible locations of your project for potential marketing and/or branding.


How is a Viewshed Analysis Completed?

A Viewshed Analysis is completed using Geographic Information System (GIS) software. The software uses the elevation value of cells within a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) to determine the viewshed or visibility to or from each cell. Our highly qualified and professional assessors will then use this information to generate your Viewshed Analysis, providing you with all the information you need about your project's viewshed.
