Abstract
This article calculated the distribution of the index temperature-humidity and wind effect in Chongqing based on the spatial distribution of temperature, sunshine duration, wind speed, and relative humidity, which considering the influence of terrain. With the guide line of W. H. Terjung Method, we categorized the distribution of comfortable climate for tourism in Chongqing. The results showed that the distribution of comfortable climate for tourism in Chongqing basically consistent with the actual situation, and has the typical of regional and seasonal characters, Comparing to spatial interpolation methods of the past which do not consider the role of terrain effects. It is a useful experiment in the study of the comfortable climate for tourism over the rugged areas.
