I would like to use a dataset of GPS coordinates (with time if available) of people (preferable tourists) visiting places in a city.

I would like to use it to compute a map layer with the intensities or frequencies of visits.

I have been using an application to make journeys by my city to make some tests but I would need much more data to accomplish the project.

Where or how can I find it? City place or transportation used by people in that city is not a need (although is preferable walking people).

  • take a look at answers for this question on GIS forum , it might help . – Mokhtar Mar 25 '18 at 13:01
  • @Mokhtar thanks. More than the location of POIs (interesting places to visit) I would like to use the paths that a visitant follows to reach there. – user1993416 Mar 25 '18 at 17:33
  • flickr's search may prove fruitful here; perhaps combining vacation or tourist/tourism tags with images that are geocoded. – albert Apr 3 '18 at 16:20

OSM has public GPS traces https://www.openstreetmap.org/traces

But you'd have to screen either the GPX files based on GPS coordinates, or text label.

You can use internet search to find keywords:

And then each trace is individually downloadable, for example:

Apparently, public GPS traces are available in bulk in the Planet data - read more.

  • I would like to thank for your answer. The last link read more it does not link any current webpage. May you update the URL, please. – user1993416 May 21 at 16:57
  • Openstreetmap offers the routes you commented but they are mostly of hicking activities. It is difficult to find dataset about city tourism. – user1993416 May 21 at 17:01
  • I updated the link – philshem May 21 at 17:56
