The study aims to introduce a new method and approach for measuring the diversity of connectivity
with the help of the landscape geometrization, in order to create a new variable useful in landscape
metrics and to decrease the costs of landscape planning if its main goal is the enhancement of
connectivity. Using induction we identify the landscape elements with geometric elements,
calculating the theoretical maximum line, section, intersection point (node) number and compare
these values of the idealistic landscape to the values of the real landscape.
