Description: In British Columbia, visual analysis is in its formative stages and has only recently been accepted by Government as a resource component, notably within the Resource Analysis Branch, Ministry of Environment. Visual absorption capability (VAC), is an integral factor in visual resource assessment. VAC is examined by the author in the degree to which it relates to interdisciplinary biophysical assessments presently carried out by the Branch. Such assessments encompass the disciplines of soils, surficial geology, aquatics, vegetation, wildlife, outdoor recreation and climate. A conceptual framework for developing a proposed system of applying these data to an overall mapping system for visual absorption capability in the Province is set forth and a sample case study selected for pilot study purposes.
