Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this project is to map ecotourism resources (e.g. nature, green accommodations) in Ithaca and the Tompkins County.
Tompkins County and Ithaca area welcome a million visitors a year. A recent study showed that the majority of tourists coming to Tompkins County come for the natural settings (Ithaca is Gorgeous!!) and were highly satisfied with their experience and plan to come back http://www.tompkins-co.org/ctyadmin/tourism/.
There is therefore a big potential market for ecotourism and sustainable tourism here, and mapping it will allow visitors and residents to see what exists and what can be done from both leisure and business perspectives.
This map will promote sustainable tourism and show that there is potential for developing it in Tompkins County.
