Students: Jacqueline Frizi, Gebhard Merk
During Module 2, Jacqueline and Geby worked on the vegetation system and its relation to the topography. By using GIS data and historical maps, which were used as image samplers in Grasshopper, they developed analysis diagrams referring to the valley and forest vegetation. The historical development of vegetation, the decrease of the swamping areas throughout the years, in the valley of Linth, revealed the increase of the productive land and the growth of economic resources for the locals. In contrary the small changes of the forest areas, from the construction of the canal till nowadays, became a very interesting antithesis of the whole vegetation system.
