With the growth of digital technology, the possibilities increase for landscape architects to gain a deeper understanding of landscape compositions and their spatial-visual characteristics. Despite the fact that digital methods are acknowledged to be useful for thinking about landscape space, in practice their potential is often still underutilized in the spatial design process. In order to break down the barriers of using digital methods in the practice of landscape design, it is essential to develop applications that show their potential and added value in a practical design context. This paper aims to provide an overview of some useful applications of digital mapping methods to understand spatial-visual characteristics of landscape and their transformations in a hypothetical landscape design process.
