This paper integrates the soil map of Seoul with data on vegetation research. Using data on topography, the existing soil map is re-interpreted discerning three landscape types: mountains, foothills and valleys, and river plains. For each of these, potential developments for plant life are distilled from existing research on plant communities. Hypothetical plant life is proposed as a potential that belongs to one of the assigned, natural landscape types of Seoul. The purpose of this research is… 

Urban landscape systems understood by geo-history map overlay

Map overlay is often used by landscape architects, planners and geographers as a method to analyze ‘green’ landscape patterns. Urban landscapes are more complex in an analysis and require culture and
