ABSTRACT

In this study, the characteristic analysis of geomancy and terrain for forty mountains named of Oknyeobong using digital elevation model is conducted to examine the geomantic meaning in a modern point of view. According to the pandect of place names, shape type of Oknyeobong is categorized as Sanbal, Danjang, Danjwa, Tangeum, Jikgeum, and Geumban. As terrain analysis results, types of Sanbal, Danjang and Danjwa showed high elevation and large scale which are related to the shape of dressing up whereas types of Tangeum, Jikgeum, and Geumban showed low elevation and small scale which are related to the shape of everyday life. After analyze the shapes based on the four animal theory, the principle points are located in the middle of Oknyeobongs and mountains facing to them have smaller scale than the principle peaks which means that the existing geomancy theory has numerically significant. Mountains in position of right and left side of principle point which are called as blue dragon and white tiger points in the four animal theory showed shape of protecting the principle point from winds with slightly higher elevation than the principle point. Oknyeobong’s peaks showed slightly steep and bilaterally symmetric shape. As results of average elevation angle, Oknyeobong showed visually stable shape.
