Reason for the evaluation project is the installation of signpostings in the public space to inform about 3 existing pedestrian passageways in Vienna. The signposting will be installed in autumn 2017 at the following 3 passages: • Praterstraße 42 • Gentzgasse 21/ Währinger Straße 100 • Ungargasse 13 Goal of the research project is to evaluate the knowledge and the usage of the pedestrian passageways before and after the installation of the signage

The goal of this research is to understand public stakeholder perceptions and landscape preferences for silvicultural treatments used to restore northern dry forest and barrens ecological communities in the US (Upper Great Lakes Region). Research questions address four study objectives: 1. Landscape Treatment Preferences: How do different levels (intensities) of overstory and understory treatments affect landscape preferences? 2. Aesthetics and Ecological Design: How do the size and shape of stand treatments and arrangement of remaining trees within low density treatment levels effect preferences? 3. Ecological Information: Can information provided to stakeholders describing the purpose of restoration treatments increase their preferences and/or acceptability of more open dry forest and barrens landscapes? 4. User and Interest Group Differences: Do different user and interest groups view restoration treatments differently? How do aesthetic preferences for the treatments compare with other response dimensions such as management acceptability or suitability for a given recreational activity
