Nielsen, Niels Christian ; Harder, Henrik ; Tradisauskas, Nerius ; Blichfeldt, Bodil Stilling (2010): Approaches to GPS-survey of tourist movements within a North Sea island destination.Short paper for ENTER 2010: 17 thInternational Conference on Information Technology and Travel & Tourism. Lugano, Schweiz, February 10 – February 12 2010. 6 pages.

Recent developments in information and positioning technologies, converging into portable devices offer new opportunities not only for tracking tourist movements, but also for interactive description and development of experiences. In this paper, we asses the usefulness of a small GPS-GSM device to track tourist movements on a Danish island dominated by summer house tourism, supported by a central database and Internet-based visualisation. A number of methodological challenges and their possible solutions are discussed. Of equal importance to the technical issues, found to work as expected, was the psychological and ethical issues related to recruiting participants and make them share their impressions and provide information on their in-situ decisions.
