Visual Resource Stewardship Conference

Argonne National Laboratory - Lemont, Illinois

November 7-9, 2017

Join members of our Applied Technologies and Environmental Services Planning groups during Argonne National Lab’s Visual Resource Stewardship Conference: Landscape and Seascape Management in a Time of Change.

Event attendees will hear from professionals across industries involved in visual resources, from federal and state employees, academics and private sector individuals. They’ll share ideas and discuss issues regarding the protection of visual resources in an era of major landscape and seascape change.

POWER’s experts will share their knowledge at two technical sessions:

A Visual Analysis Methodology Applied in Urban Environments

Darrin Gilbert and Jason Pfaff will present, “A Visual Analysis Methodology Applied in Urban Environments: Public Participation and Alternatives Analysis.” They’ll offer a process for evaluating visual impacts and engaging the public for projects in urban areas, which is critical to obtain state and local permits and helping to protect our sensitive developed landscapes.

Emerging Technologies for Visual Resources Management

Jason Pfaff and Shawn Jackson will present, “Emerging Technologies for Visual Resource Management.” They’ll discuss the latest tools and emerging technology for visual resource managers. The presentation will cover augmented reality, virtual reality, drones and advanced visualization technology to help analyze, design and plan for new projects in the seen environment. Used with traditional visual management systems, in the field or for desktop review, the tools can better promote best practices and facilitate better communication to the public and regulatory agencies.
