A natural landscape is a natural complex formed by the interaction of natural factors without the influence of humans. Natural landscapes include geologic geomorphologic landscapes, natural water body landscapes, bio-landscapes, atmospheric landscapes, and space landscapes. Natural landscapes that are affected by human factors such as artificial forests and reservoirs can be called semi-natural landscapes or artificial natural landscapes. Natural landscapes with ornamental value attract tourists and can become important tourism resources, making them the main research focus of tourism earth science.
