Travel in the Future
The project aims to develop a decision support tool to help city councils and other organizations that work within the tourism sector. Travel in the Future aims to study the quality level of methods and models used to predict tourist flows within a specific location, as well as analysing tourism data usually available on open-sources, such as: Social Networks, Open Data and Big Data, official websites of the sector, web pages and web portals dedicated to various destinations. This is a forecasting model that will be tested on five types of destinations: artistic cities, small villages, national parks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and historical regions.
