Understanding the visitor and their ever-changing needs is fundamental to tourism planning. Having historical visitor data and understanding global and local trends in tourism and society is important for effective planning. Predictive tools (such as 'tourism models') that have the capability of storing and analysing large amounts of data can assist visitor planning and management.
Visitor planning generally involves a number of well-accepted planning elements. A range of 'tourism planning frameworks' (planning concepts) have been developed that can assist in effective visitor planning at the site level.
