The preservation of historical cities is an important part of modern human—nature relations, the value of which far exceeds an emerging tourism industry. The final goals of geographical planning methods are researching the combination of natural factors and urban construction environments; extending the concept of scenery and city landscapes to a wider area; combining natural resource preservation, land use planning, and landscape planning in a region into one field; and, ultimately, achieving sustainable development in human living environments. To study the planning of natural landscapes, scenic spots, and protected areas within historical sites from the perspective of geographical landscaping in order to conserve the continuity of the natural mountains and rivers, protect the integrity of the natural landscape context, and form a preservation network of landscapes in the historic capital of Nanjing.
