2003 Landscape and Urban Planning  
Methods for creating virtual vegetation using techniques of computer graphics are presented. First, a new generation method for plant geometries is shown. The resulting models are combined to form a realistically looking vegetation. In the final step, the models are converted into a special representation that is used to create synthetic illustrations of plants. The illustrations can be drawn in various drawing styles, animation of the illustrations is possible. The method can be used to
