Imaging / Technology

Microsoft Word - KGC - SECTION 2 - LGD profile.docPlan Production  While we still utilize pencil and sketch paper to develop preliminary ideas, all of our finished plan work is developed using AutoCAD 2013 (Civil 3D) software. This innovative program allows us to easily produce plans in full color and at varying scales.  All of our design work is available in electronic or paper formats and produced entirely in-house for fast and easy distribution to our clients, whether via standard UPS delivery, email, or ftp site.

Before & After Computer Imaging   At LGD, we also utilize photo manipulation technology to create before and after imaging of proposed golf course changes before ground is even broken. This is an extremely valuable tool in the presentation and sharing of ideas. Using three-dimensional imaging allows our clients who are largely unable to interpret two-dimensional plans to “visualize” the proposed changes in a photo-realistic format.

In the example below from the Bridges of Poplar Creek, the middle photo shows our artist’s rendition while the bottom photo shows how it was actually rendered in the field.
