ZHANG Hsiao-fei, WANG Yang-lin, LI Zheng-guo. THE STUDY AND DEVELOPMENT OF LANDSCAPE SCIENCE IN TAIWAN[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2004, 19(5): 845-851.

Because of the distinctive natural environment and cultural environment, the landscape studies in Taiwan have different topics and focuses from others, covering many current issues that we must deal with,for example, how to conserve the natural resources by reasonable ways, how to solve such problems as pollution, traffic blocks, insufficient space, and how to satisfy the citizens' needs on recreation, and how to set up laws and rules on management of land-use to meet the need of ecology, economic and society. In order to solve these problems, we  do researches through observation, records analysis, cases studies, questionnaire investigation and the methods which could set the weight and the causes, assess of the values of natural resources, the changes analysis of landscape combined with the techniques of GIS, GPS and RS. In the future, the development of the landscape studies in Taiwan will still be based on the principles of ecology to strive to add the value of landscape science by many aspects, such as reducing the social cost for the disasters caused by nature or human, finding a better way to assess the landscape resources, establishing suitable models to plan and monitor land-use, defining the specialized field and responsibilities of the landscape experts, building up a planning and designing style to fit up with the natural and societal cultural needs of Taiwan.
