LANDPREF is a novel tool to assess desired land use visions. It enables the adjustment of a virtual landscape according to personal preferences of competing land uses, and is an interactive tool for the survey-based assessment of land use preferences. It allows the respondents to interactively combine competing land use options at different intensity levels to an overall desired land use. The combination of land use options is restricted based on current state of the knowledge and practice guidelines and requires respondents to make explicit trade-offs. LANDPREF has originally been designed for the Pentland Hills case study and has since been adapted and applied in other surveys.
