A Landscape Assessment Framework for Visual Impact Assessment in the USA

While widely prepared for EISs, there is no widely accepted geospatial approach to VIA in the USA. A landscape assessment framework for VIA is introduced that may be adapted to a project’s particular context, such as the availability of spatial data and local sensitivities. The Northern Pass Transmission Project is used as a case study to show how it can be applied.
