Land resources can be defined as resources (e.g., natural resources, human resources, and other socio-economic resources) that are under the jurisdiction of a sovereign state, including territories, territorial seas, territorial airspace, continental shelves, and exclusive economic zones. They can also be defined as the natural resources within the jurisdiction of a sovereign country. Land resources are characterized by integrity, regionality, limited extents, and variability. The various resources of tourist areas are land resources and therefore have regional and sovereign characteristics.
