Employing technology to stimulate public participation in planning
Based in the heart of Glasgow, Linknode are at the forefront of developing software designed to assist the planning and visualisation of renewable energy projects. Melt provided strategic communications support to their latest ground-breaking innovation in planning and visualisation: VentusAR.
VentusAR is a GIality based mobile application that enhances existing methods of Visual Impact Assessment. Using handheld devices (e.g. i-Pad or smart phone) for assessment, VentusAR widens public access and engagement with proposals and reinforces objective decision making through a rigorous and auditable digital process.
Taking into account Scottish Natural Heritage's Landscape Visual Impact Assessment Guidelines, Melt worked with Linknode to support stakeholder engagement with Local Authorities and decision makers as Linknode took VentuaAR to market.
