Abstract: In a coastal zone, it frequently becomes important to assess the influence of the constructions upon the marine traffic environment. Marine traffic is a man-machine system, and so not only a externally observable quantity but also a mental load on navigators should be evaluated to determine the feasible plans for keeping the marine traffic safety.
