This paper suggests models of the landscape complexes based on the theory of complex systems and category-functorial approach. With the use of the space Landsat images the existence of the Earth's landscape field is proved and criteria of its parameter characterization is suggested. The unity of spatiotemporal changes of the landscape units is substantiated.
