DescriptionThese 104 papers were presented at "Our National Landscape: A Conference on Applied Techniques for Analysis and Management of the Visual Resource," Incline Village, Nevada, April 23-25, 1979. Included in this proceedings are state-of-the-art papers on landscape planning. Emphasis is upon planning the visual aspects of the large and wildland areas of the United States. Methodologies presented are useful in many areas of the world. The major thrusts of these papers are to a) describe the current and future challenges to the visual resource; b) describe available technology for solving landscape planning problems; and c) illustrate appropriate combinations of technology and problems. Specifically, papers address these themes: landscape challenges (presented as a series of "simulated visual field trips"); descriptive, quantitative, and psychometric methodologies available to solve land-scape problems; available legal and policy tools; combinations of technology for solving problems; landscape management systems; new dimensions of landscape planning; and priorities for research.
