A methodology is being developed based on the use of GIS and remote sensing tools for landscape character mapping in a pilot study area in Sardinia. The methodology is based on physical and cultural attributes of the Sardinian landscape using GIS as a decision support tool. In this abstract the first steps of the methodology is presented and future work is further discussed. In particular, the applicability of this methodology is investigated as a framework for the mapping and monitoring of cork oak habitats in Sardinia. This novel approach will be used in order to explore the interplay between the physical and cultural factors in the distribution of cork oak habitats in the island.
