COMPREHENDING THE LANDSCAPE SCALE book
The main attraction of the landscape scale as a framework for spatial planning is its holistic nature, and its capacity to integrate human and environmental systems within identifiable and distinct places. However, this also makes for great, perhaps overwhelming, complexity. This chapter looks at ways in which we can comprehend – or ‘get our heads round’ – the qualities of landscape. It looks both at the emerging multi-attribute information base, and our capacity as humans to interpret whole landscapes.
