Verified views, Accurate Visual Representations (AVRs), Verified Visual Images (VVIs) and Visually Verifiable Montages (VVMs) are all terms used to describe the same thing. Accurate technical visualisations.
Accurate surveying, photography and a 3D model of the scheme are combined to deliver the final product.
These technical visualisations follow the guidelines and recommendations (see below) relevant to the project/development being proposed. They are often requested by local planning authorities, as part of landscape & visual impact assessments, serving as a visual aid in the decision process. They are key to understanding how a proposed scheme sits in its contextual surroundings, from specific locations. These types of image add credibility and assurance to planning applications.
Visualhorizon3D owner, Asil Purcell, has been creating these types of views throughout his visualisation career, working with some of the biggest and best companies in the construction industry. He has also trained and passed on his skills to other Architectural Visualisation professionals.
Industry standard guidelines and recommendations include the following.
- Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, Third edition, with relevant Guidance Notes (Landscape Institute and Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment).
- Visual Representation of Wind Farms. Guidance (Scottish Natural Heritage. Now NatureScot).
- London View Management Framework. Supplementary Planning Guidance (Greater London Authority).
