Most of the research topics in this study were firstly searched for information by the Internet. The other landscapes are based on physical and human activities. They are moving forward step by step, and they are taking photos of photos along the road. However, some of them have historical parts. It must be from other documents and historical materials, so collecting information and integrating it is also a problem for the team. However, under the guidance of the members' mutual efforts and teachers, it is still completed at the last minute, and everyone of the members can know. The ability to integrate is very important.
