Abstract

In the framework of a systemic conception of the geographic landscape, a study of its diversity is performed using textural indices issued from remote sensing images Among several tested relations, the etropy and the density of land cover boundaries seem to be the most efficient parameters. They have been computed into circular landscape units of 81.7 ha of size. A PCA has been realized in order to obtain a synthesis of the landscape structure. The first component was selected explaining more than 80% of the total variance. Its is weakly correlated with a digital elavation model. The latter was elaborated as a roughness indicator in order to enhance the attractivity of the landscape. In conclusion, these two parameters seem to be complementary indicators well suited to evaluate this attractivity.
