Mark, Classifying landscape character, discusses approaches to classification of ‘landscape character’ and how GIS can be used to assist. The complexities of classifying landscape are discussed, since landscape has a number of meanings and can be conceptualized at a range of scales. The authors contend that language plays an important role, especially if the opinions of members of the public are utilized as well as the views of scientists. This leads to discussion of the important role that landscape classification plays in communication and in determining how geographic space itself is conceptualized.
