  5. 5. As we all know tourism is like fire, it’s the way it’s done that determines wether it’s good or harmful to the place where it occurs. Geotourism tends to limit the negative effects of the three overlapping tourism styles by bringing the notion of « land use » : Anticipate development pressures and apply techniques to prevent undesired overdevelopment and degradation. Contain resort and vacation-home sprawl, especially on coasts and islands, so as to retain a diversity of natural and scenic environments and ensure continued resident access to waterfronts. Locate high-impact, selfcontained tourism attractions, such as large-scale theme parks and convention facilities unrelated to character of place, in needier locations with no significant ecological, scenic, or cultural assets.
