This is a resource system with tourism value that was formed by geological processes. During the 4-billion-year evolution of the Earth, abundant geological relics with tourism value have been left behind in every layer of the Earth and in all types of rocks. These are geological landscape tourism resources. They include stratigraphic section tourism landscapes, palaeo-biotic and palaeo-anthropological tourism landscapes, endogenic geological process tourism landscapes, exogenic geological process tourism landscapes, mineral resource tourism landscapes and environmental geological relic tourism landscapes.
