The traditional heritage corridor is considered as one strategy of regional heritage preservation, which is linked with urban green space system. However, as a large-scale and linear urban public open space, heritage corridor landscape has a dynamic tour system that is closely linked with citizens’ life and tourists visit experience. We introduced the concept of landscape visual attention-degree in the former related research. And then through the study of visual evaluation criteria of heritage corridor landscape and dynamic sightseeing features, we established a quantitative visual evaluation system influenced by multi-factor interactive model. Based on that, we take the Grand Canal (Hangzhou section) as an example, deepen at methodology level and practice at the operational level. On the one hand, we optimized heritage corridor landscape visual evaluation method under different movement modes by establishing a pairwise-comparison quantization scheme of landscape visual attention-degree, and also we improved a quantitative visual evaluation model under the influence of multi-factor. On the other hand, through analysing the urban environment around the heritage corridor and combining computer visualization technology, we construct the dynamic tour system, so as to enhance the overall landscape visual perception and landscape image of the heritage corridor.
