Abstract: In the field of environmental planning and design, planners and designers often engage in various projects, residential planning, recreational planning, open space planning and design etc. based upon the natural landscape. But in accomplishing these projects, a series of planning, design and construction processes occur, which give rise to environmental destruction and many serious social problems. Therefore, it is very important to assess the impact which residential development, recreational development etc. with the resultant changes in the land will have on the natural environment. Microclimate, surface and underground water, geology, small animals, vegetation, landscape, cultural resources beneath the surface etc. are considered to be the items of the natural environment which such projects will generally affect. There are very few studies which discuss environmental analysis and environmental impact assessment in respect of environmental planning and design. This study sets out to analyze the landscape changes in development sites and to assess the environmental impact on the surrounding areas from a visual aspect. As an analysis and assessment tool, a visible and an invisible concept and appearance model of landscape change were developed through topographical investigation and appraisal. As the first step, a visible and invisible potential map of the landscape changes which could occur at the development sites and which could affect to the surrounding areas was completed. As the second step, an appearance model of the landscape changes of the development sites was drawn, by considering the topographical characteristics and visual characteristics of the study area. Finally, the consequences and unpleasing effects of the impact of landscape changes were clarified based upon visible and invisible concepts and the appearance model of the landscape changes.
