Research Profile: Complex systems - micro data analysis.
The present project aims to further develop micro-based decision support to be used by public planners for more effective and more sustainable decisions regarding infrastructure investment in connection with destination development. The aim of the project proposal is primarily to increase the understanding of the scope of tourism at local and regional level. The project's further developed model enables better forecasts of local and regional effects of tourism, which contributes to increased
understanding of the national effects of tourism being used for planning infrastructure investments linked to tourism.
The main result of the project is a methodology for data collection including a model for describing effects as well as a BI tool for visualizing the volumes and effects of tourism. The end result of the project is expected to be able to meet the need of planners at several levels to be able to describe both the business and socio-economic effects of tourism better.
