    Description

    Before any question about wise management decisions concerning the visual resource of our environment can be answered, it is necessary to conduct a detailed analysis to determine the integral visual inventory of landscape, as it impresses any involved person. With this method of landscape analysis researchers and planners can specify the potential of any region with an approach suitable for the problem. The knowledge about visual landscape elements is, in addition, a requirement to comprehend their influence on the motivation of any visitor or inhabitant.
