Background: For most people, the natural environment is recommended as an affordable health promotion method.

Goal: Develop an app to collect people's health information and return people's environmental health prediction scores. The data can also be used in landscape planning and design in the future to design healing fields for people to use.

Discussion: Experiment with a preliminary developed application. The research results show that the altitude of Toucheng Farm is slightly higher than that of flat land; when the temperature is low, the heartbeat in the physiological response increases, and the weather and relative humidity of the day will affect the preferences of tourists.

Conclusion: Climate and environmental factors affect personal physical and mental health and social distancing strategies caused by the global epidemic this year. The next step of the research is to consider the impact of climate and social distance factors on people's health and incorporate them into the health route system.
