Accredited Visual Impact Evidence

Compliant & Accurate 3D Photomontages

Photomontages for Visual Impact Evidence

Accurate 3D Imagery for development approvals


If a local council authority rejects a development application, the issue is settled by mediation.

When this happens, town planners and property development solicitors are brought in to argue the merits of a proposed development in a mediation court of law before development approval is granted.

For example, in Victoria where we have done a lot of this work, the mediation process begins via an application to VCAT (Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal).

Submissions must include accurate photomontages or other computer-generated images, with a detailed accompanying statement explaining: who prepared the images; the methodology used; the type of software employed; details of photographic equipment and camera angles; time and location data from the scene; as well as details (with images) comparing the existing conditions with the proposed development.

What Eagle Vision does is simple to explainwe take the worry out of Visual Impact Assessments for you.

Our efficient process for the creation of 3D images – from initial briefing to delivery – means we can offer a rapid turnaround in time-pressured situations. We make sure materials and statements for Visual Impact Assessments can be completed accurately and comprehensively, and we take steps to ensure backdrop photography is sufficiently detailed to fulfil the requirements of the various approval authorities:

  • External consultants conduct a specialised site survey and deliver a 3D point data cloud file.
  • The exterior background is photographed according to prescribed settings, and the photos are used in our 3D matching process.
  • With our world-class 3D Studio Max software, we align the photos with the 3D space, using markers from the surveyor’s 3D cloud data.
  • It’s complex and complicated to do — we make the complex and complicated simple for you.


In this way, the model can be matched perfectly into the background, with accurate time-of-day lighting and other effects, to achieve photorealism and comply with VCAT practice notes and other authority guidelines.

Five Insights to 3D Photomontages for Visual Impact Assessments

Have your 3D visualisations ever failed to stand up to the test at VCAT or similar mediation panels?

Have they ever been questioned for accuracy or technical methodology?

Or have they ever been thrown out of VCAT because of failure to deliver the compliant visualisation in time as per the VCAT Practice notes? 

This definitive guide will step you through the five key insights to understanding what goes into accredited 3D photomontages and what steps to follow to ensure the visual evidence is accepted and used throughout the hearing.

Key Insights

  1. Photography – How to follow the strict process of obtaining the before photos of the streetscape.
  2. Survey – How the camera points survey is utilised to create accurate photo-matching.
  3. 3D Model –  How model flexibility is crucial to ensure tight deadlines are met.
  4. Vegetation – How proposed vegetation needs to be shown on the 3D photomontages.
  5. Methodology – How the methodology statement needs to explain the process of producing visual impact assessments.
