Vectorworks Landmark is an all-in-one 2D 3D CAD program for conceptual design, design development, presentation, irrigation, and documentation workflows. Vectorworks has the flexibility to support an entire project from concept to delivery and anywhere in-between with tools created specifically for the landscape architect.
Building Information Modeling
Vectorworks BIM modeling software has the capability to link drawings, details, models, and schedules. This means that a change in the CAD file is reflected everywhere, saving time that would otherwise be spent manually updating drawings.
The process of Building Information Modeling helps design optimization by:
- Automatically generating schedules and reports
- Calculating construction costs and material takeoffs
- Analyzing terrain for cut/fill, slope, and drainage
- Evaluating water budgets and track sustainability goals, like LEED and SITES projects.

Collaboration and File Sharing
Vectorworks makes it easy to collaborate and share files with colleagues, consultants, and clients. The design software offers the most default import/export capabilities available, as well as support for openBIM and IFC and direct links with several other software:
With technology in landscape modeling changing rapidly, Vectorworks makes new technologies accessible including:
- Point cloud
- Cloud services
With an extensive suite of drawing, illustration, and rendering tools, Vectorworks allows you to produce remarkable line drawings and 3D presentations.
