Monitoring the Touristic Values of European Landscapes

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

    Abstract

    On European scale there is a lack of data concerning preferences from tourists for certain landscapes.
    The website www.myplacetobe.eu is the innovative tool to collect and monitor data about landscape
    preferences but without using costly inquiries. The visitor can choose between sixteen land use types
    and supplemented features in his/her search for a touristic destination in Europe and fill in how much
    he or she wants of a certain land use type. The application draws a personalized map of Europe which
    indicates where the European landscape corresponds closest to the user’s stated preferences, using all
    kinds of digital topographical data. All preferences and maps are saved in a special database E-scape. The
    database already has almost 20.000 maps and is still growing. Forest is the most preferred land use type
    for European tourists.
