Abstract

Autochthonuous landscape of the island of Hvar has considerably changed in the last two hundred years, particulary by intensive development of tourism activities since the mid-20th century. Using GIS as most systematic methodological tool for spatial analysis it has been conducted an insight of island's landscape in year 1975 and for the period from 2002 to 2011. The dominant types and subtypes of island's landscape were defined, as well as prevailing trends of change. Taking into consideration the interaction of human and Earth's factors of shaping the environment, landscape change intensity was interpreted in observed period. Particular emphasis is placed on the possibility of revitalizing the abandoned agricultural areas of the island, cultivating with grapevines, olive trees and lavender as the traditional agrarian cultures. Future management of the island's area should be developed through the interdependence of sustainable tourism and organic agriculture production, as two fundamental spatial resources of the island of Hvar.
