Landscape will affect people’s perception of the environment, so people’s behavior will change in the environment. Landscape recognition and accurate assessment of this area provide optimal planning and management of the land and have provided extensive studies in recent years around the world. While this article has observed various stages of scientific research, it also has pursued micro or macro ideas containing in previous works and has sought how changes in the aesthetic quality estimation of landscape methods over time in various scientific fields. landscape beauty is the result of the interaction between the biophysical characteristics and human observation, which leads to methods based on perception (subjective) and expertise (objective) to assess landscape beauty. Since there is a complicated relationship between landscape perception and landscapes experiencing through a range of personal perspectives and perceptions, mental evaluation is usually dealing with challenges. The most significant benefit of assessment is based on its specialized efficiency, which uses automated methods to evaluate at a wider level. However, expert-based evaluations do not achieve high accuracy since they are highly dependent on specific knowledge and evaluator's judgment. Assessing the aesthetic quality of the landscape by integrating approaches and using comprehensive methods will lead to favorable results. Implementation of advanced tools and techniques such as GIS, Remote Sensing, Mathematical modeling, and Artificial intelligence in assessing the aesthetic quality of the landscape will enhance the accuracy and speed of the results.
