- Abstract in English : This article is dealing with the method of landscape assessment research. Photographs have long been used to represent environmental conditions in the context of landscape quality assessments and environmental perception research. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the validity of using human observers’ perceptions and preferences base on computer-generated environmental visualization to assess the quality of the actual landscapes represented. This question is inextricably bound up with a longer-standing question about the validity of using photographs to represent actual landscapes in landscape quality assessments.
