    Description

    This paper relates the evolution of an empirical model used to predict public response to scenic quality objectively. The text relates the methods used to develop the visual quality index model, explains the terms used in the equation and briefly illustrates how the model is applied and how it is tested. While the technical application of the model relies heavily on existing computer technology and remote sensing techniques for assembling and manipulating the data, the primary value of the work lies in what was learned about using photo response tests and surveys as measures of predicting public response, and how this relates to managing the visual resource.
