Description: A set of four visual inventories are proposed. They are designed to document scenic resources for varied scales of application, from regional and general to local and specific. The Northern Great Plains is used as a case study. Scenic analysis and identification of criteria extend earlier work. The inventory is based on (1) study of previously developed landscape analysis methods and their terminology; (2) examination of high altitude imagery and topographic maps as sources of visual information; and (3) field observations in the Northern Great Plains. Criteria include visual characteristics and patterns of land forms, vegetation cover, water, and land use.
