The main goal of this paper is to introduce new methodological approaches and outputs of semi-complex landscape typology of Czechia. Different approaches of landscape classification both in Czechia and the world are briefly presented. The main methodological output is a proposal of landscape typological classification, based on up-to-date dataset synthesis, which uses objective geographical methods and tools and follows current approaches in Europe and the world. The practical result of this study is the definition and cartographic representation of landscape types at three hierarchical levels – General types of natural landscapes, Types of natural landscapes, Types of present landscape.
