 "A viewshed designates a field of vision witnessed by onlookers.  It can be a forest, grassland, ocean, or desert, and represents a biotic community within a cultural context.  To have a viewshed, there must be a viewer, and a reason for this spot or area to be scrutinized.  Like the word landscape, viewshed implies a witness, often for aesthetic reasons, or with an eye towards conservation because of the natural beauty of the place."
* Gretel Ehrlich, in Home Ground: Language for an American Landscape, 2006, Trinity University Press, eds. Lopez and Gwartney
