hey martin -
most people i've met use CAD functioning software for design. and i am pretty sure there would be some software out there that would be compatible with your needs.
the software you are describing sounds excellent - maybe someone needs to hire a computer programmer to design something specific.
sorry could not be of more assistance.
CAD works well - especially because of the ability to map contour lines and then pre-determine water courses, house sites, map the movement of the sun, shadows and that sort of thing.
good luck on your search

hey twiggy - most people who are fluient at picking up software like photoshop and others should, with some time have no probs using CAD.
Auto CAD is highly regarded, and highly expensive -
has some interesting plug ins and simple starting programs that do the basics - and are freeware
best to hit google - time in "free software CAD" and see if you can find something you like.
