Abstract: The abandoned quarries are a kind of highly degraded ecosystem and cause visual pollution. Based on field investigation and GIS, combining improved Visual Resource Management (VRM) with Landscape Pollution Index (LPI), 40 abandoned quarries in the 47.2 km2 planning area of Jiulong Mountain Chinese Cultural Symbolic City were assessed, then 7 different restoration schemes were put forward, which are short-term ecological revegetation, short-term landscape re-building, short-term ecological revegetation/landscape re-building, medium-term ecological revegetation, medium-term landscape re-building, long-term ecological revegetation and long-term landscape re-building. The assessment of abandoned quarries provides objective reference for choosing ecological revegetation or landscape re-building.
