There is a special lack in the relevance of subjectively attributed aspects: «Some know the price of all but the value of nothing». So it is relevant to integrate perceiving, beauty, esthetics etc. into the characterization of ecological and manmade geographical units — thanks to an Extended View as well on the person as on the environment.

his study focuses on waterfronts which are a source of ecosystem services and are now one of the rare urban natural elements, based on the idea that it is essential to maintain and further a sound relationship between ecosystem services and human wellbeing, in order to recreate today\'s cities to sustainable eco-cities.
