    Description

    This paper identifies the types of visual resource changes occurring in rural landscapes. These types include changes due to agricultural technology and land use patterns. The changes are described in relative dimensions of the landscape elements both as patterns and as individual visual elements. This paper relates visual resource changes to various countryside contexts and thus begins to evaluate the impact of change in certain landscapes. Finally, a process for identifying and evaluating visual changes in rural areas is proposed.
