Unlike previous texts that have focussed on migratory patterns of tourists and new mobilities in tourism, Tracking Tourist Movement and Migration is the first text to address tourist movement in from a methodological angle in the post-digital era. It assesses how movement and migration has been recorded in the past, how it may be recorded and assessed now and the possibilities for exploring movement in the future.

Using international case studies that are both current and historical, it explores the range of options that exist for assessing tourists’ movement, along with the relative merits of each method. It will give a special focus to new technologies that facilitate our understanding of movement, such as the use of big data, hashtag scraping, Wi-Fi tracking, farming data from mobile phone towers and cutting-edge GPS tracking. It discusses the positive and negative consequences of the use of these new technologies and tackles issues such as ethical dilemmas and future trends and technology needs.

Tracking Tourist Movement and Migration:
  • Serves as the definitive guide for understanding the methods involved in understanding tourist movements and tourist migration patterns’
  • Uses international case studies from around the world, both current and historical to explore the range of options that exist.
  • Gives a special focus to new technologies that facilitate our understanding of movement.
