The Land Use Change in the Scenic Area: A Case Study of Huangguoshu

Based on information entropy theory and ecological footprint theory, we analyze the changes in land use and land ecological carrying capacity in Huangguoshu scenic area during 2009-2012. The results show that the area of arable land and construction land was relatively increased while the area of grassland and woodland was relatively reduced in Huangguoshu scenic area during 2009-2012, and the information entropy showed a wavy change. It indicates that the land use in the study area poses increasing pressure on the ecological environment, and there is a need to strengthen ecological protection and achieve the coordinated development of land use and ecological environment construction.
