- Contrast Analysissearch for term
A method for assessing potential project related changes to the landscapei. A project could produce visual contrasts on the existing landscape. These imposed contrasts can be measured by comparing the project’s features with the major features and existing contrasts in the landscape. The measured differences between the existing landscape contrasts and those created by a project are used to determine the level of landscape change and whether the additional project contrasts meet or exceed acceptable levels.
