Hokusai's influential Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji illustrates how this mountain resonates as a landmark, regardless of the viewer's identity, location, season, or time of day. Whether or not the human subjects acknowledge the mountain, it retains this role; it is always there (Hokusai 1830-1831, 1830-1832, 1831-1833, 1852).

This paper explores the reciprocal relationship between landscape, human attention, and time. It presents two sacred landscapes: Epidaurus and Nemea, located in the northeastern Greek Peloponnese. In both landscapes, worshipers created sanctuaries on prominent mountains. Eventually, their attention shifted downhill where they built larger, monument...

... this type of prominence required two different datasets: a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and a vector point shapefile representing feasible locations of observers in the study area (Susmann 2020, Table 2; 182). 5 For each observer, I applied the following workflow: I used ArcGIS's Skyline tool to model that observer's horizon in 360 degrees (Figure 14). This produces a polygon shapefile that surrounds the observer, recording the horizontal extent of their visibility. ...

... data about travel pathways between these two sanctuaries are scarce (Melfi 2010, 318) but there is evidence that the two became entwined Figure 14. Using a combination of ArcGIS's Skyline tool and custom Python codes, the horizon line for any observer can be simplified into a vector line. ...
