    Description

    Land planning allocations are often multi-resource concepts, with visual quality objectives addressing the appropriate level of visual resource management. Current legislation and/or regulations often require interdisciplinary teams to implement planning decisions. A considerable amount of information is currently avail-able on visual assessment techniques both for land planning and project implementation needs. Most literature does not emphasize the interdisciplinary process used to implement multi-resource activities. Processes which are overly complex in analysis or assessment technique commonly lack team commitment and therefore have limited useability. Also, processes in which team members are expected, or choose, to make strong recommendations outside their particular discipline are of questionable value, i.e., landscape architects making silvicultural and logging system recommendations.
