To learn the fundamentals and best practices of computer aided drafting and drawing as applied in  landscape architectural construction documentation and site engineering applications. 


To engage the integration of 2D  and 3D  data and modeling environments.


To facilitate the learning of 3D visualization techniques that enable designers to fully understand the scale and character of the designed landscape, and the digital tools available to facilitate communication about design functionality, performance, and form.


Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:


Apply fundamental digital drafting techniques using applications such as AutoCAD 2014 and SketchUp;


Integrate survey data and images in typical CAD files;


Manage file structure/file management structures;


Evaluate distinctions between technical and illustrative graphics for use in different representational application contexts;


Apply annotation conventions (dimension styles and text);


Plot, publish e-transmit, and export drawing data;


Apply Sketch Up’s three dimensional capabilities with AutoCAD throughout the implementation process;


Create 3D model from scratch;


Manipulate 3D environments and establish appropriate viewing angles;


Export 3D data for 2D use in AutoCAD; and


Export 3D imagery for printing.

mlnosbis 2/20/2018:
-Syllabus should include full instructor contact information (including phone number).
-Syllabus should include a breakdown of how grades are determined. Listing the PRR is not enough. Explain how assignments will be graded and what constitutes each letter grade. Example: A+ = ____, A = ____, etc.

cohen 2/24/2018:
1. Under Instructor's Policies on Attendance (Section 11), what happens if a student is, say, in the hospital for three classes? Will the student lose a letter grade?
2. Under Excused Absences (Section 11) in the syllabus, it appears that students must contact the instructor prior to class for each excused absence. There are times when that may not be possible. (The example on the syllabus is potentially one such time.) How will those absences be treated?
