SEETIES In 2010, Erich Fisher used open data to create these maps. Tourist destinations, cities and places, change every year and it would be interesting to compare this visual research with an updated version. It would also be interesting to use these data and their visualisation to help mass tourism to spread in the territories with the mission on the one hand to make too touristy cities more liveable for citizens and on the other hand to promote places like suburbs, forgotten neighbourhoods or villages suffering from depopulation. “Tourists VS Locals” is becoming an increasingly important issue worldwide and we should learn to use creativity also to try to create possible solutions to this contemporary urban tension that someone call overtourism or tourismphobia.
