Description :
It is shown that Farcher's method of evaluating scenic quality is not successful in the Obertauern area. Farcher's technique is typical of the traditional methods of landscape evaluation commonly used in regional planning. These methods are all based on the more-or-less arbitrary selection and measurement of certain physical variables which, according to a chosen algorithm, are weighted and combined to give a set of scores for scenic quality.
