Summary/Abstract: We have evaluated the digital data layers according to their relevancy in establishing the natural landscape types of Slovenia. To find out which digital data layer (e.g. slope, temperature regime) can sufficiently reveal differences among potential Slovenian landscape types, each layer was compared with the map of landscape-ecological types that was produced by a group of geographers. We used different methods (e.g. gain ratio, Mann-Whitney U test, Spearmann correlation coefficient, decision tree) to select and to test the most appropriate data layers.
