  2. 2. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Project idea <ul><li>The GISST sub-project was born inside a larger geomatic initiative called GRISI from 3 principal needs: </li></ul><ul><li>to integrate and to complete tourist infomation which the partners already manage ; </li></ul><ul><li>to supply visitors with information easy accessible; </li></ul><ul><li>to spread the network of patners’ services for visitors. </li></ul>Realized with European Union funds

GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Leader and partners PARTNER : 1) REGIONAL COMMITTEE FOR TOURISM OF MIDI-PYRENEES Region: Midi-Pyrenees (FRANCE) 2) NATURAL PARK OF “SENORIO DE BERTIZ” Region: Navarra (SPAIN) LEADER : 1) MAJELLA NATIONAL PARK Region: Abruzzo (ITALY) Realized with European Union funds
  4. 4. Summarizing partners’ results CRT CRT has collected geographical coordinates of about 3000 villages and associated them the info available in the existing Tourist DBMS of the Department Committee of Tourism (such as hotels, restaurants, campings and so on) representing about 15.000 geographical elements. S ENORIO DE BERTIZ N ATURAL PARK Bertiz has collected a lot of tourist ’ s data both geographical coordinates than attributes such as for an hotel the telephone number, the address, etc.). For the moment they are available on Bertiz website both for downloading than for displaying thanks to Google Maps. MAJELLA NATURAL PARK MNP has collected tourist data, but in particular Majella has created a very user friendly and standard compliant WebGISapplication. Besides has generated WMS services. Realized with European Union funds
  5. 5. Other principal results Majella and his partners have achieved a lot of important results: - A Tourist Geoportal available at www.gisst.euwith online maps and data collecting (both tourists data and basic cartography for example the ortophoto and the Digital Terrain Model); - WMS services to ensure interoperability (not only for Majella); - A metadata catalog ISO 19115 and INSPIRE compliant (available at Region Abruzzi GRISI Geoportal) - Promotion activities :, ,www.freegis- , partner's websites and other, a brochure and a booklet; - Training and experience sharing: 2 partners' international meetings, a seminar for Park's operator Realized with European Union funds
  6. 6. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism What is accessible thanks to GISST maps? <ul><li>During one year (2007) the GISST partners realized a Tourist Geoportal ( ) with online maps through which the visitors can access to: </li></ul><ul><li>basic information (base cartography, orthophotos, etc.); </li></ul><ul><li>administrative boundaries; </li></ul><ul><li>visitor centres, info points, museums, etc.; </li></ul><ul><li>information about where to eat, where to stay, where to practice activities; </li></ul><ul><li>essential and emergency services. </li></ul>Realized with European Union funds
  7. 7. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Let’s have a look to the maps! This is the first screen when you access on Majella’s online maps realized with WebGIS standard technologies. Realized with European Union funds
  8. 8. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Let’s have a look to the maps! Detailed map: this is how the map looks when you zoom in using WebGIS tools. Realized with European Union funds
  9. 9. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Let’s have a look to the maps! How to query the database: clicking on a point you can obtain a popup with usefull information. Realized with European Union funds
  10. 10. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Let’s have a look to the maps! Another example: clicking on an element in the map (a peak) the system shows you a photo of the locality. Realized with European Union funds
  11. 11. GISST WebGIS for Sustainable Tourism Let’s have a look to the maps! Another way to query and browse information is to write a keyword (such as animals, museums, etc.) in order to obtain a list of results and zoom in the map directly to the information you are looking for. Realized with European Union funds
  12. 12. What’s important in GISST sub-project <ul><li>Majella is the first in Italy, among national parks, who have a real Geoportal with online maps, WMS services and a metadata catalog; </li></ul><ul><li>we used standard and open source technologies (INSPIRE compliant)  the Italian commission for geographical information standards (CIG-UNINFO) was interested to our project and results as an example for other organizations; </li></ul><ul><li>we payed a special attention to users: they don’t need any particular technologies to acess the maps but only an internet connection and a common browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera); </li></ul><ul><li>we developed a WMS service to realize interoperability; </li></ul><ul><li>after only 7 months of activities we already have 70 visits per day to our online maps. </li></ul><ul><li>For more info: </li></ul>Realized with European Union funds
  13. 13. Collection of tourist information about Señorío de Bertiz N. P. and the municipalities of his environment, such us: where to eat , where to sleep , museums, churches, tourism offices , information centres , trekking , ... Señorío de Bertiz Natural Park - results • Tourist data digitizing and georeferencing. • Transformation to shp, dxf, gpx format. • Data input in the website of Señorío de Bertiz N. P. www. parquedebertiz . es • Publication of georeferenced information, available to be used with a GPS by the visitors of the Park and its environment.

  17. 17. <ul><li>Following GISST success, we all hope to continue the work: </li></ul><ul><li>CRT is going to develop a GIS application/tool to satisfy professional needs . Besides they are planning to collect more detailed data such as the coordinates of each tourist services and activity (15.000 elements); </li></ul><ul><li>BERTIZ is planning to develop a customized online mapping module with WebGIS technologies following Majella example. This will be more simple thanks to WMS service created for Bertiz by Majella; </li></ul><ul><li>- MAJELLA is going to collect more tourists d ata in order to publish them in the Geoportal. Besides we want to power the Geoportal with more geographical services and its WebGIS tools , for example a friendly way to download GPS coordinate or the WFS service . </li></ul><ul><li>One of the problem that the partners feel is the updating of the data (the classical problem for a GIS) so it ’ s very important to continue the GISST subproject to work on this aspect. </li></ul><ul><li>But the most important objective for the future is to prosecute the international cooperation that was very effective, let us know new way working with geographical information. </li></ul>Future developments Realized with European Union funds
