The Analytical Tourism Map of Piedmont

The Analytical Tourism Map of Piedmont

A project by:
Marco Bernardi
Federica Fragapane
Francesco Majno

The Analytical Tourism Map of Piedmont has placed first in the Piemonte Visual Contest, the infographic contest it has been conceived and designed for.
It has been realized analyzing the open data made available by the Piedmont Region.

The work aims to investigate the issue in complete and detailed way, considering both the attraction factors of the region and the evolution and dimension of tourists flows and accomodations.
On the left part of the poster, the Piedmont's map shows the most important landscape assets, architectural heritage buildings and museums, winter sports facilities, gastronomic products and wine. Every element is geolocated on the map, and it's easy to identify the beauties of different territories and the best places to visit.
On the right side, the visualization shows the variations of tourist flows (from 2006 to 2012) compared with the accommodations (hotels, bed and breakfasts, hostels, campgrounds, etc.), all divided in the 8 provinces of Piedmont. It clearly stands out how hotels hosts the greatest amount of people, but also how the number of B&B and Agritourisms is strongly increasing in the last years.
