  • Abstract:

    GIS, RS and GPS are powerful tools that are used to explore many geographical subjects. These new methods of data collection and analysis also have the potential to underpin a new era of longitudinal studies of resort morphology. The capabilities of GIS in facilitating spatial analysis, in handling (collecting, classifying and managing) multiple types of data and in analysing complex phenomena to reveal the spatial connections between data units are useful in morphological studies. This paper uses case studies to show how GIS techniques can be used to process both spatial and attribute data, to map morphological features, and to analyse changes in the morphological characteristics of resorts. It suggests some promising directions for GIS applications in studies of resort morphology and associated implications for resort management and development planning.
