Land consolidation and land exchange are two important measures that can be used to improve the spatial structure of farm holdings. Unfortunately, land cannot be consolidated and exchanged in all villages of a given area simultaneously, due to economic, technical, and social considerations. Instead, an analysis has to be carried out, which allows one to rank the villages with regard to how urgently they need consolidation and exchange of land. When analyzing and assessing which areas require land management measures most urgently, and especially when performing comparative spatial analyses, it is recommendable to use the methods of multidimensional statistics to determine a synthetic measure. Synthetic measures convert the features of an object analysed into one aggregate variable, allowing one to determine, which objects require consolidation and exchange of land more urgently than others. The aim of this study was to determine the need for consolidation and exchange of land in sixteen villages of the commune of Frampol, located in Biłgoraj District, Lubelskie Voivodship. The research area covered 1,0293.55 ha of farmland divided into 27,417 land parcels (cadastral plots). The Helwig’s method was used to determine the ranking list. The calculations were done using a group of factors identified on the basis of data obtained from a real estate cadastre database for each of the locations studied. The results, expressed in the form of a synthetic measure for each village, allowed us to develop a prioritization scheme for consolidation interventions in the area discussed.
