An investigation into the use of visualisations in the Resource Consent Process
The use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) drawings or other static images (including photo-shop and simulations) to visualise potential future situations is common and powerful in planning processes. Its production, use and understanding in gaining planning permission in the New Zealand context is investigated through interviews with 13 architects and planners in Christchurch. The findings highlight the dilemma faced by planners in using visualisations and questions the drive for accuracy and realism in visualisations
