Abstract
The objective of this paper is the methodology development to get landscape of an area by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques and a verification afterwards by photographs taken from highways. For this purpose, the method uses for this methodology is composed of the main components to describe the landscape, which are landform, vegetation, land use and special spaces. All these components are managed and mapped by using GIS, specifically the ArcGIS 9.3 (ArcMap and ArcCatalog). To do this, it is necessary to use both raster and feature formats. The methodology uses of various coverage extending from the contour, vertices surveying, dimensional points, administrative boundaries of the province, rivers and reservoir, vegetation and land use, human activity, aerial photo and protect area. All this information has been provided by the National Center for Geographic Information and Spain Europac. Also several ArcGIS 9.3 tools have been used, such as neighborhood statistics or surface analysis. As a result, we apply the methodology to a specific area in Spain which is Gerona province to get landscape cartography. Afterward, we compere the landscape result with a pictures taking from AP7 highway in Gerona in order to verify that this classification corresponds with the reality.
