Reviewing Geotagging Research in Tourism
Advanced medium-sharing service and mobile technologies create a large volume of geotagged data online. The characteristics of geotagged data provide a new method for tourism and hospitality researchers to analyse tourist movement and behaviour. To extend knowledge on utilizing geotagged data in the tourism and hospitality industry, this study aims to review existing geotagging research in tourism and hospitality and thus identify a potential research topic in this area. Five research categories and future geotagging research topics in tourism and hospitality are identified and discussed.
