Remote sensing images include photographs and other digital products that record electromagnetic waves of various objects using film, photo paper, and tape as carriers. Aerial photographs and satellite photographs are the most commonly used remote sensing images. In tourism research, tourist resources and environmental information at different spatial and temporal resolutions can be obtained through the interpretation of remote sensing images of tourist areas.
