A new approach to landscape analysis including identification of landscape types and of relationships between land use and landforms, can be provided by statistical treatment (multivariate analysis, conditional probabilities) of data obtained from panchromatic air photos. The information, when applied to automatic land use mapping from treatment of Landsat imagery, give geomorphic significance to the mapped unit. The method was tested in France in the Ambazac highlands in the northwest of the Limousin.
