LSS Advanced

Course Duration: 1 day
Cost: £175 plus VAT per person (discounts available for multiple places and bundles)

Based on LSS Elite and intended for experienced LSS users who have attended the LSS Intermediate Course wishing to learn about advanced design, volumes and terrain manipulation.
The course covers importing gridded dataset; setting a background drape; sidewall, longitudinal and template design; Advanced volumes;
Restoration modelling; Isopachyte modelling; adjusting DTM for settlement or required volume; Designing platform at a balanced cut/fill level; surface depths.
