Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

After being settled, human being developed road networks to provide connection between settlements. Roads are developed with the automobile industry at the beginning of the 20th century. New roads may induce development in previously undeveloped areas, sometimes significantly affecting sensitive environments and the lifestyles of indigenous people. Motor vehicle use has increased rapidly with the result that transportation is now a major source of environmental problems. Human activities within a landscape often result in loss of land cover types, fragmentation of habitats, remaining land cover into smaller and more isolated, disturbing wildlife movements and plants. Transportation decisions affect land use ...

The Degree Of Visibility As A Tool To Assess And Design Of A Visual Corridor, Urszula Forczek-Brataniec

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Visual analysis has permanently entered the procedures related to design and management of spatial resources. It is strengthened in the form of instructions and textbooks and hence has become a vital source of information for more conscious design of spatial effects. The basis of the visual analyses is the range of the view - called viewshed. It used to be marked out with a ruler and a topographic map (Felleman, 1986) while currently this process is conducted with digital tools (Bishop, 2007). In this way we gain information regarding the range of the view from a particular site and hence the ...

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The intensification of agricultural landscapes significantly sped up in the 20th century. The European Union created the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with the objective of securing the productivity, the biodiversity and the ecological stability of agricultural landscapes. A new measure in the 2014 CAP Reform is “greening”. Its goal is to support agricultural activities which are beneficial to the climate and environment as well as to protect landscape elements which are important for ecosystems. The impact of this measure on the landscape structure is unpredictable.

In this study, we compare the earlier legislation to the current greening provisions in order ...
