As many destinations reopen and many people restart travelling, the management of tourism and its sustainability become even greater priorities.

In particular, it becomes even more important to get the right data and technologies to manage the flow of visitors in an area, with the new social distancing rules integrating a destination’s management strategy.

Through HERIT-DATA, 13 partners from Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina are developing innovative solutions to better manage the impact of tourism flows on cultural and natural heritage sites, through the use of technologies and big data.

We have just launched our new video to explain our work and how it’s going to be useful to make the tourism sector more sustainable!

New report: economic value of open data

The European Data Portal, an initiative of the European Commission, has published a report about the Economic Value of Open Data, which illustrates the value created by open data in Europe.

The report estimates the open data market size at €184 billion, and forecasts this size to reach between €199.51 and €334.21 billion in 2025. The document also quantifies the impact of open data in terms of money/time savings, environmental benefits, and much more.
This insightful document shows that open data and data collection tools & technologies are key ingredients for innovation, and to help addressing today’s societal challenges. This also includes supporting and promoting the sustainability of tourism.

It remains crucial to know which data to collect and how to manage the information that we gather, in order to reach our objectives while preserving high privacy, security, safety and ethical standards.
