Comparing landscape value patterns between participatory mapping and geolocated social media content across Europe


We compare the use of PPGIS and Flickr in landscape value assessment. Landscape values and their spatial patterns are compared across sites. We find more cross-site differences than similarities both in spatial patterns and value types. PPGIS elicits a wider spectrum of values, while Flickr mainly elicits relationships to and with landscapes. We recommend a complementary use in future landscape value studies.
