Majority of Digital Travel Researchers Will Be Mobile by 2015 | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
2015 will be the tipping point: Half of digital travel researchers will check out flights, hotels and more not only on a desktop or laptop PC but also (or only) via mobile, eMarketer predicts. And smartphones are more commonly used for both researching and booking travel than tablets.

Could ‘rich data’ become a local commodity?

Could ‘rich data’ become a local commodity? | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it

Berners-Lee’s address challenged the big data hype and said that it is wasted on its current owners (big companies) who only use it to serve ‘ever more queasy targeted advertising’. It can often feel like we are being spied upon.

 
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

“If you put together all that data, from my wearable, my house, from other companies like the credit card company and the banks, from all the social networks, I can give my computer a good view of my life, and I can use that. That information is more valuable to me than it is to the cloud.”

Show the flows of migrants as of 2010 through the use of open data (see Data Sources). The data are presented as a slopegraph that shows the connections between countries. The chart is split in two columns, the emigration countries on the left and the destination countries on the right. The thickness of the lines connecting the countries represents the amount of immigrated people.

But what’s the evidence for benefit tourism? The answer is that there is very little - and it is an extremely complex picture.

 

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

“No evidence shows that access to the specific special non-contributory benefit income-based Jobseekers Allowance could be considered a significant driver for EU migrants in the UK.”

Dot City: Welcome to the Age of Virtual Geography | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

In the process, a hotel, restaurant, bar, or bakery; a locksmith, plumber, or architecture office; a government services firm or even a tech blog—all can now territorially mark themselves as being from, and based in, a specific city or region. This has both the positive effect of capturing local clicks and the negative effect of seeming far too insular for others to want to visit them (a plumber.nyc website will all but instantly lose appeal in the eyes of anyone even slightly outside the city).

SoLoMo | One well-informed tourist is worth his weight in gold.

SoLoMo | One well-informed tourist is worth his weight in gold. | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
What does SoLoMo mean? Well, it means “Social Local Mobile”. Basically, it’s when a tourist with nothing but a bottle of water and a Smartphone, consults the social networks as soon as he/she arrives in a new location.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

SoLoMo first originated with the coining of the term by famous American venture capital investor, John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Then French blogger and entrepreneur Loïc Le Meur made it available to the masses at the LeWeb 11 conference. Above all, SoLoMo is the contraction of three words that are doubtless more familiar: Social, Local and Mobile.

Brazil | Bar codes on sidewalks give tourist info | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
Rio de Janeiro is mixing technology with tradition to provide tourists information about the city by embedding bar codes into the black and white mosaic sidewalks that are a symbol of the city.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

The city plans to install 30 of these QR codes at beaches, vistas, and historic sites, so Rio's approximately 2 million foreign visitors can learn about the city as they walk around. "If you add the number of Brazilian tourists, this tool has a great potential to be useful," said Marcos Correa Bento, head of the city's conservation and public works.

USA | How Delays Propagate Across Airport Network

USA | How Delays Propagate Across Airport Network | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it

A new computer simulation shows how the flight delays spread across the US airport network like wildfires. Flight delays are the bane of any traveller. They also have an economic impact, an estimated of $40 billion per year in the US alone, according to the 2008 Report of the Congress Joint Economic Committee. So a better understanding of the nature of flight delays is surely of great interest. 

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Systemic delay propagation in the US airport network

Pablo Fleurquin, Jose J. Ramasco, Victor M. Eguiluz

Technologically driven transport systems are characterized by a networked structure connecting operation centers and by a dynamics ruled by pre-established schedules. Schedules impose serious constraints on the timing of the operations, condition the allocation of resources and define a baseline to assess system performance. Here we study the performance of an air transportation system in terms of delays. Technical, operational or meteorological issues affecting some flights give rise to primary delays. When operations continue, such delays can propagate, magnify and eventually involve a significant part of the network. We define metrics able to quantify the level of network congestion and introduce a model that reproduces the delay propagation patterns observed in the U.S. performance data. Our results indicate that there is a non-negligible risk of systemic instability even under normal operating conditions. We also identify passenger and crew connectivity as the most relevant internal factor contributing to delay spreading.

Cities are a new kind of complex system: Part social reactor, part network

Cities are a new kind of complex system: Part social reactor, part network | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
Scientists have derived a series of mathematical formulas that describe how cities' properties vary in relation to their population size, and then posits a novel unified, quantitative framework for understanding how cities function and grow. The resulting theoretical framework predicts very closely dozens of statistical relationships observed in thousands of real cities around the world for which reliable data are available.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Cities are also massive social networks, made not so much of people but more precisely of their contacts and interactions. These social interactions happen, in turn, inside other networks -- social, spatial, and infrastructural -- which together allow people, things, and information to meet across urban space.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

The new Chinese tourism law, which came into effect on October 1st, 2013, rules out the common practices of forced shopping or involuntary payments for activities outside fixed itineraries for Chinese package tours. Under this business model, tour operators would not only save on the cost of paying tour guides but would often even receive money from the tour guides for the right to earn commissions from the tourists’ shopping and sightseeing.

Any mature Internet product always has difficulty proving its success or illustrating its evolution. Foursquare is definitely one of the companies with a product that fit into many buckets, depending on who you talk to. Today, the company has released a detailed, interactive and gorgeous, topographical map, plotting out 500 million check-ins from the past three months.

Whether you use Foursquare to check-in or not, you can still find value from all of the data that it has collected over the years. The company hopes that by using this data, you’ll be inclined to participate as well.
