    I didn’t know where exactly to post this, but I would love it if everyone could answer a couple market research questions for a project I am working on. Your input is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.
    1. If you have used any computer (or mobile device) programs for design, what is your biggest complaint about the tool? What did you like most?
    2. In what way would you like a computer program help you with gardening or garden design?

    Hi Eric and welcome,
    1) I use sketchup ... the main complaint I have is they removed the ability to create contour lines from the google earth terrain data. I haven't found a good option to replace this (yet).
    2) I would like a drawing/design program to inherently include the ability to show contour lines. This is essential to understand water/energy flows through a land parcel and a critical piece of the Permaculture design process.

    Eric,
    If you're building a new design tool, we'd love to hear more and see the final results!

    I’m sure it will take some time, but I will definitly let you know when its 1st iteration is finished.
