In recent years, fractal dimension has been applied to medical images analysis, material engineering, as well as to satellite photography of the terrain. In the paper the attempt is made to use fractal dimension as an objective indicator supporting the assessment of landscape changes predicted as a result of new anthropologic elements introduction. Authentic expert assessments have been analysed and comparisons have been made between the intuitive evaluations and results of calculations.
