Abstract

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ecosystem soundness in landscape scale using landscape indices, and to extract regional information that can be used for sustainable landuse planning. About BongWha-gun, the landcover classification using Landsat TM images and patch analysis ware carried out, and some landscape indices were calculated using geographic information system(GIS) and patch analyst program. As the results of this study, Seokpo, Jaesan and Sochun got higher scores in landscape indices related to the ecosystem soundness. But, Bonghwa-eup got lowest scores in the 10 regions. When compared with normalized difference vegetation index(NDVI), this result showed consistency to some degree. Although, there needs more supplementary studies, it is anticipated that landscape scale ecosystem evaluation using landscape indices can gives us some informations related to sustainable landuse planning.
