I am excited to announce that there are some new nodes in the latest Landform update. These nodes are written in C#, and if you are interested in taking a look at the source code, I also now have a repository for Landform on GitHub. Shout out to John, over at sixtysecondrevit and creator of Rhythm and Monocle, for getting me going on these.
Most of these new nodes are focused on editing Topography, which is something that I have always wanted to do in Dynamo.

This method can be used to place any number of symbols, annotations, or even detail components in a specific view.
