Senior Associate at DHM Design, Published Author in 3D Modeling and Visualization
Daniel Tal, is a registered landscape architect with over 20 years of experience, a 3D modeling and visualization expert, published author, blogger, technology-editor-at-large for Landscape Architecture Magazine (LAM), software developer and consultant and an accomplished professional public speaker. Tal runs a 3D modeling, visualization, and drone studio (with five pilots) for DHM Design, an urban design studio in Denver, Colorado. Daniel is working on a current book on the use of Drones in professional practice. Daniel is the co-owner and developer of PlaceMaker (www.suplacemaker.com) and 3D modeling plugin that allows for the import and refinement of OpenStreetMap information integrated with DigitalGlobe imagery. Daniel plans to continue to develop the app to further integrate AI level capabilities to help further help automate various 3D modeling processes. He has authored two books for Wiley and Sons publication: SketchUp for Site Design and Rendering in SketchUp. His books have sold over 20,000 copies and he recently published a second edition of his first book. Daniel works with many organizations to provide innovative, inspiration, technology oriented presentations. For almost 10 years, Daniel has been public speaking for trade organizations and private firms, providing dozens of presentations and seminars around the country.

Lecture: Landscape Architecture Technology: Drones, Driverless Transportation, AI and BIG Data
Landscape architecture is benefiting from the growth and impact of the digital age and revolution. Join Daniel Tal for a lecture on the current state of technology that is having big impacts on the way landscape architects practice. Presenting real world projects, attendees will leave with knowledge to help direct their own research and skills. Learn how drones are used to create hyper scans of site projects providing unprecedented access to data for site design. Similarly, Big Data and AI’s impact on design intelligence is just as compelling with new advanced in remote sensing and lower cost solutions to geo-data. And for over 100 years, the urban fabric has been directly responsive to vehicles of all kinds. With the advent of flying personal drone carries and automatous vehicles, the land and society, are poised to change in dramatic ways.
