About this book

Quantitative Techniques in Landscape Planning covers all aspects of landscape planning, from the initial stages of the study to the final stage of processing data and obtaining a classification of the study area. It describes the process of conducting an inventory and the methods for integrating information from the inventory into the analysis. It also discusses the application of optimization techniques for assigning significance to points in the study area according to planning objectives.Consisting of four comprehensive sections, Quantitative Techniques in Landscape Planning includes discussions on the choice of variables relevant to a particular study, and the processes, risks, methodologies, and statistical techniques of performing a landscape planning study. Systems and classifications for planning purposes, developed in the United States and abroad, are discussed and analyzed.
