Healthy Plants, Healthy Places: Embedding biosecurity in landscape projects

5. Exploring urban and rural landscape assessments
Our landscapes face continued pressures and constant change. Recording and mapping landscape change, however, is complex, and demands awareness of the modelling tools and techniques available.
Find out how to model landscape change using geographic information systems (GIS), with focus on different spatial data and their strengths and limitations within both urban and rural contexts – and see how LVIA visibility analysis can help us understand the effects that loss of landscape features can have on specific locations.
