AbstractThe major goal is to reveal the need to understand the dynamics and impacts of landscape change from a current temporal perspective. This is performed here through the study of various settings in the landscape along Highways 180 and 64/180 in Arizona, being proposed for State Scenic Road designation. Selected landscape segments is the subject and the highways are a flexible platform from which to observe and assess these landscapes. Once sources, kinds of, and magnitude of possible or potential landscape changes and impacts are identified, this study proceeds to prescribe landscape planning strategies for their scenic and open space protection and enhancement. Potential landscape change and its impact should be predicted in order to plan and manage for the protection and enhancement of desired landscape values into the future. It can input people's perceptions to appreciate landscape values from varied perspectives such as: aesthetic, ecological, cultural, and socioeconomic.
