Apreciar

I have heard a Peruvian saying something like, "se aprecia el valle desde la colina." I think it means, the valley can be seen from the hill. A dictionary confirms this. Is this a commonly understood usage of apreciar?

- El juez apreció que las pruebas no eran suficientes.

- En el video se aprecia quiénes iniciaron el incendio.

- Me puse a dieta hace un mes pero apenas se aprecian los resultados.
