The aim of the assessment is to ensure protection of the landscape. Impacts on the landscape are assessed in relation with building wind farms, silos and transport structures, with identifying the values of the land for spatial planning decisions or with applying limits on areas for spatial plans.

The landscape and the natural, cultural and historical character of a certain place or area are protected from actions that decrease their aesthetic or natural value. The location of construction that might disrupt the landscape and the permission to proceed require the approval of the nature conservation authority. This requires the submission of an impact assessment of that particular object or area on the landscape.

In addition to these impact assessments, we also prepare an preventive assessment of landscape character, which is used as the expert basis by the decision-making authorities of nature conservation and by the processors of spatial plans. The areas and locations that increase natural, cultural and aesthetic values are defined in it, and the conditions for protecting them are determined.

The principal objective of evaluating the intention or assessment is to ensure the protection of the landscape in value-enhanced areas. Evaluating the intentions, or spatial plan, is done as part of the EIA/SEA process. The landscape character protection assessment is included in the Spatial Analytical datal (ÚAP).
