The concept of landscape is discussed in relation to environmental studies and landscape assessments. It is argued that the separation of landscape into natural and cultural has hampered interdisciplinary syntheses and understandings of complex ecological relationships. The importance of perspective and varying ways of viewing and thus assessing the landscape is emphasized. It is argued that the lack of understanding of landscape as a holistic term, encompassing both material and intangible factors, has hindered sustainable solutions in environmental management. In research carried out in Tanzania, maps and map-making have been tested as a tool in communication and discussion to reveal and visualize intangible factors alongside quantitative information.
