Urban Site Base Map

"...An essential part of the design process is creating a base map. A base map is an essential tool for helping model and visualise ideas. It can be used as a means of familiarising yourself with the landscape.

The simple act of building the map forces you to take a step back and view what you are working with at a more holistic level. It affords you the opportunity to view the relationship of things from a third person perspective. I also found it to be a useful motivator for creating a site survey, as essentially I tended to only record those things that either I wanted to keep or those that I knew I would need to actively work on."
