Recording and Evaluating Agricultural Landscape Services


A multifunctional agricultural sector is responsible inter alia for keeping the landscape open, and for contributing to its attractive appearance. Both services are compensated by direct payments. The present project clarifies

  • whether high-temporal-and-spatial-resolution satellite images are suitable for delimiting different usage patterns in grassland in the mountain region, thereby helping to monitor the maintenance of an open landscape;
  • what the relationship is between the costs of selected measures in landscape-quality projects on the one hand, and the effect on the population on the other.

The project also examines whether a survey of the population on the scenic quality of the landscape used in a FOEN landscape monitoring programme (LABES) would be suitable for monitoring agricultural-landscape-quality projects.
