In recent years, turism has benefited of several improvements in many
fields, such as, the transport business and many countries's foreign
relations which made travelling more affordable, easier and all around
more accessible for the common person. As a consequence the flow of
tourists all aroud the world has increased and expanded in a way that
these flows became rather complex to comprehend and analyse.
 
The W.T.O. project aims to provide a way for easy and simple
visualization of these migration flows in a efficient and web-based
platform. Using data provided by the United Nations World Tourism
Organization (UNWTO), the W.T.O. project will use this data to produce
a knowledge database and provide an efficient web-based framework
to display not only the tourist flows but also other tourism related
metrics.
 
The data was provided by the United Nations World Tourism Organization
(UNWTO) and ranges in the hundreds of countries on a period of over a
decade, and it not only contains information on the flows of tourists
but also information on economical pointers related to the tourism
industry.
