Whether you’re presenting a project idea to a client or to the public at large, it can be difficult to know if the vision that you’re presenting is lining up with what your audience is imagining.

More and more, Abonmarche is seeing requests for project visualizations. When presenting a project, you can explain it in exhaustive detail, but a drawing or rendering can often communicate so much more.

There are a variety of visualization formats, from animations to renderings.

Due to the many stormwater, asset management, and wastewater (SAW) grants awarded to communities throughout Michigan, cities are now taking a look at their assets and creating improvement plans that carefully balance costs against risk in order to prevent problems.

A geographic information system, or GIS, is a tool that can aid in the creation of these plans. Any community asset, from trees to benches to garbage cans to bus stops, can be logged in GIS. An asset’s exact location can be noted, as well as its condition, asset photographs, and any other information.
