View the main City Science Andorra project profile.

With more than eight million visitors a year, tourism represents almost 30% of the economy of Andorra. By gathering and analyzing data from social media, call detail records, and wifi, we can understand the country's dynamics of tourism and commerce, and design interventions that can improve the experience for tourists, encouraging them to visit Andorra more frequently, stay longer, and increase spending.

  • Location Recommendation system

EVENT ANALYSIS

Based on the analysis of Call Detail Records and Social Media, the goal of this project is to understand the tourist behaviors in Andorra. After mining those anonymized data we have been able to learn different patterns and behaviors of the tourism in Andorra thanks to an agent-based model developed in order to represent the flow of people. This simulation is also coupled with an interactive table called CityMatrix.

LOCATION RECOMMENDATION SYSTEM

Based on the analysis of Call Detail Records and Social Media, the goal of this project is to predict the tourist behaviors and routes in Andorra and finally develop a better targeted tourist attraction recommendation system.
