Abstract: In order to solve the problems of high average absolute error and low accuracy of index weight calculation in traditional methods, an estimation model of ecological environment carrying capacity of tourist attractions based on structural equation was designed. Structural equation model is adopted to define the tourist scenic spot ecological environment bearing capacity estimation indicators of potential variables and show in the variable, based on the variable data to build the coupling model of ecological carrying capacity, establishing ecological environmental bearing capacity index system, index weight is obtained by using the entropy weight method, in order to build capacity estimation model, input variable data into the model of bearing capacity estimation. Experimental results show that the index system established by the model has a high goodness of fit with the model, the average absolute error of index weight calculation is low, and the calculation accuracy is up to about 95%.

Keywords: structural equation; ecological environment carrying capacity; index system; coupling coordination degree; estimation model.
