(In Progress) English Riviera Global Geopark: Optimising Tourism Data
The English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark covers the entire area of Torbay. It is defined as a site of geological significance and natural and cultural heritage. Through holistic management of protection, sustainability, accessibility and education, geoparks have become an innovative way to rejuvenate beautiful locations and attract tourism, job creation and revenue generation, supporting both social and economic development.
The Impact Lab project aims to create an online interactive visualisation tool, bringing together all the partner sites and tourist information in an accessible way. Including links to sustainable business, events, walks and wellbeing activities, the tool will act as a single mixed media viewer.
First stage development will look at the online mapping system, and second stage development will explore making this map three-dimensional and creating novel interactions.
