Workpackage J (WPJ) of ESSnet Big Data focuses on innovative tourism statistics and has as objectives to develop a conceptual framework and set up a smart pilot Tourism Information System to support statistical production in the field of tourism by integrating various big data sources with administrative registers and statistical databases using innovative statistical methods.
Its planned actions include identifying and evaluating the availability and quality of various big data sources, developing methods to combine data and their spatio-temporal disaggregation, developing prototype production system for tourism statistics, and recommending data sources to produce good quality tourism estimates as well as ways to set up a smart and robust Tourism Information System;
WPJ is carried out by representatives of eight ESSnet Big Data partners: GUS (Statistics Poland) which is leading WPJ, and NSI (Statistics Bulgaria), ELSTAT (Statistics Greece), HSL (Hesse Statistical Office, Germany), ISTAT (Statistics Italy), CBS (Statistics Netherlands), INE (Statistics Portugal) and NSI (Statistics Slovakia).
