ABSTRACT

This study confirms the border mismatch areas between the Baekdudaegan as typical natural boundary and provincial (Do) boundary as representative artificial boundary in South Korea, and examines the landscape features of each area. The border mismatches between the Baekdudaegan and the Do boundary appear total eight areas, such as each one area of Bonghwa and Yeongju at Gyeongsangbuk-do, each two areas of Munkyeong and Sangju at Gyeongsangbuk-do, a area of Namwon at Jeollabuk-do and a area of Gurye at Jeollanam-do. Of these, the area of the western part of Sangju is the largest of about 285.86 km2, and the area of eastern part of Namwon is next of about 254.09 km2. Many these border mismatch areas have discomforts of living and transportation of area resident, conflict of neighboring municipalities and problems of administrative management and land registration owing to discordance between administrative district system and life zone.
