Abstract. We proposed objective quantificational indices for a relation between contour lines of a structure and its background in line drawings utilizing wavelet and spectral analyses. We carried out multiple regression analyses for each preference judgement point given by a questionnaire survey as a criterion variable using the quantificational indices as explanatory variables. Considering results of these multiple regression analyses we discuss a possibility to explain one's preference for landscapes in terms of the objective quantificational indices.
