Human activities have brought major changes to landscape, as a result of the expansion of settlements, and other activities. The need to valorise the landscape for the requirements of current and future activities results from the more and more limited space, which in itself becomes an important resource, which should be properly valorised and then shaped. The literature presents a wide variety of landscape valorisation and assessment methods used for various aspects of economic or scientific purposes. However, there is no universal method. This review article summarises selected diverse methods used for valorisation, assessmentand economic valuation of the landscape.

Keywords: landscape, landscape valorisation, methods of landscape research, landscape value, landscape assessment
