A method called visual computing was used to solve angular four-components' proportions and directional vegetation cover fraction for discrete canopies and continuous row-planted plants. It proved effective to predict the angular characteristics on pixel scale. The method could be an alternative way to a classical solution of geometrical optical models. A visual computing method would be effective especially when the canopies' spatial distribution and shapes were irregular and could not be described statistically.
