Abstract This study presents the results of spatial analysis of wilderness values in Alaska. Using data from two regional planning studies, perceived landscape values from inside and outside wilderness areas were compared to determine if proportionate value differences exist between wilderness and nonwilderness areas. Multiple regression analysis was used to confirm the results and determine the relative strength of general landscape values as predictors of wilderness value. Results indicate that wilderness areas reflect values associated with indirect, intangible, or deferred human uses of the landscape—life-sustaining, intrinsic, and future values—whereas landscape values outside wilderness areas reflect more direct, tangible, and immediate uses of the landscape—economic, recreation, and subsistence values.
