This project aims at extending micro based decision support to be used in public planning for infrastructure investments of relevance for sustainable destination development. The ambition with the project is to increase awareness of the volumes and effects caused by tourism at local and regional level. The comprehensive model enables more precise forecasting of local and regional effects from tourism, which in turn increase awareness of national effects of tourism that can be used when planning infrastructure investments.
The main results from the project is a methodology for collecting data, including a model that describes the effects as well as a BI-tool that visualizes the volumes and effect of tourism. The project’s results will meet the need of planners at local, regional and national levels of an extended description of the tourism business- as well as socio-economic effects from tourism.
