Abstract. Ecology and environmental suitability are widely used in urban ecology and regional ecology. However, there is still a lack of systematic evaluation method system for the research impacts of tourism development and tourism resource development on ecology and environment in ecologically sensitive scenic spots. Taking Lijiang River Basin, an ecologically sensitive area with typical karst landforms, as an example, this paper analyses the ecological and environmental suitability of tourism development from the perspective of space. In this paper, TM image and DEM model were firstly used to extract NDVI, slope, slope aspect and other related data. Then, based on the characteristics of the study area, the data of each factor was graded and assigned with a grade value, and the spatial situation of each single factor was analyzed, and superposition was carried out at last. Meanwhile, the study area is divided into three levels for tourism development, namely, unsuitable area, sub-suitable area and suitable area.
