Abstract

Landscape is “an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors” (Council of Europe, European Landscape Convention, 2000). The changing conditions of this complex factor that determines the variability of our local and national contexts can be effectively measured thanks to quantitative and qualitative indicators, which could be calculated using Gis, thanks to elements of geostatistics and numeric cartography. This paper will illustrate, then, the speculative basics of the need of using Gis for the quantitative and qualitative landscape analysis.
