LoTu_Cotidianeidad local y turismo. Method for evaluating correlations between spatial characteristics and urban dynamics.

It is a project financed by the Gipuzkoa Provincial Council through the 2023 call of the Support Program for the Guipuzcoan Network of Science, Technology and Innovation. The project proposes the development of a method that interrelates the physical parameters of the city with georeferenced Big Data of a social nature. In this way, it will be possible to visualize and analyze local and tourist dynamics in a disaggregated manner.

As in previous projects, the method will be designed to carry out municipal scale analysis. It will be replicable in other contexts. In this occasion the case study will be Donostia-San Sebastián.

Date: September 2023 – October 2024


The main objective of this proposal is to understand the relationship between the urban dynamics of people and the physical and functional characteristics of the city, focusing on the existing conflict between the use of space in the daily life of local people and the tourist presence and activity.
