This paper presents new methodology for landscape evaluation at the subregional level. The gap between the provincial and municipal levels is indicated as the most important shortcoming of the current system of spatial planning in Poland. This is an issue of particular importance for the preparation of landscape plans, especially for more than one municipality. The solution for this problem may lay in preparation of plans for functional areas e.g. metropolitan areas or catchments. Metropolitan Research Centre as a part of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań has attempted to create a planning document for the Poznań Metropolitan Area, which consists of 22 municipalities. During the work on the Study of the Conditions of Spatial Development of Poznań Agglomeration, a series of scientific elaborations were created. Among them, an important role was played by studies in the field of nature and landscape protection. The main aim of those studies was to identify visual landscape values. For the purposes of planning in very urbanized areas, it was assumed that the most important is the landscape viewed from the frequently used roads. The primary result of the study is the map presenting spatial distribution of areas which should be protected because of landscape openness. The Topographic Objects Database, scale of 1:10 000 and GIS tools were used in analysis.
