ScopeEvaluation of landscape has been developed in a variety of fields, such as geography, landscape architecture, nature protection, and some others. Landscape appreciation is a complex and sophisticated psychological phenomenon. There is no consensus among researchers on what the phenomenon of "landscape" truly is, how people physiologically and mentally experience it, which human attributes affect the perception of it, and why it is apprehended the way it is. The concept of landscape appreciation has yet to be clearly defined and there is a lack of agreement on evaluation methods, the factors that determine landscape preferences, the steps in appreciation, and so forth. This session aims to discuss the research findings of landscape evaluation in various fields, including geography, geomorphology, landscape planning, architecture, engineering, social sciences, environmental psychology, meteorology, phenology, and so on.
