Investigating Landscape Preference Using Fractal Geometry

This paper presents the second half of an exploratory study looking at the use of fractal dimensions of landscape photographs as predictors of preference judgements. An online survey was prepared and disseminated in both the UK and France to collect demographic and preference data. By comparing different types of preference (aesthetic, cognitive and affective), it was found that the fractal dimensions of the images were most reliably correlated with participants’ desire to explore a scene. This correlation was strongest using the fractal dimension of the image’s extracted edges, and for British participants who grew up in peri-urban or rural environments.
