Development of a tourism intelligence system for Catalonia based in the compilation and treatment of data.

The Tourism Data System (TDS) project manages an interactive and easy-to-use digital platform capable of providing the public sector and private companies with a great volume of trustworthy data and, this way, allowing them to grasp the current tourism conjunction in Catalonia, as well as its historical evolution.

With this information, the aim is to facilitate the decision-making process and enhance the adaptation to current and future challenges in a key sector of the Catalan economy.

To accomplish this, the TDS harvests tourism information from different sources and analyses it and compiles it in order to generate useful information. This information is made available to the multiple agents that collaborate with the project through an online digital platform where, among others, it is possible to do tailor-made queries and download reports of results.

The TDS project relies on a team of experienced professionals with interdisciplinary knowledge, as well as with the collaboration of tourism management public institutions and private tourism businesses.
