AbstractLandscape scenery is an extremely important resource not only for tourism but also for the quality of life. Hence there is a need to classify and manage landscapes. This paper shows how viewshed analysis based on the mobile viewer can be used to evaluate a route and provides a method for assessing the landscape planning of highway. Bresenham algorithm is adopted to select the candidate points to calculate the visibility. This research represents a new method toward the development of geographic information system tools which could provide visual information for making decisions for route-based visibility analysis.
