Abstract

This article applies spatial multiple criteria evaluation (MCE) by weighted linear combination of factor layers in a computerised geographical information system (GIS) to aid development of spatial policy and planning of cultural and food and wine tourism in the Western Cape. It explains spatial tourism development policy, tourism marketing and expressed tourist preferences that translate into suitability indicators or attraction features for capture in a spatial resource database. Two sets of tourism attractions are conceptually defined, captured in spatial format as mapped variables and statistically weighted for MCE modelling. The fine-scale outcomes in map format allow comparisons to be made of the effects of variable MCE execution rules for the two products. The application can be replicated for entrepreneurial and regulatory planning.


Die artikel pas ruimtelike multikriteria-evaluering (MKE) toe deur die lineêre kombinering van faktoroorlegte in 'n gerekenariseerde geografiese inligtingstelsel (GIS) vir die ontwikkeling van ruimtelike beleid en beplanning rakende kultuur- en voedsel- en wyntoerisme in die Wes-Kaap. Ruimtelike beleid vir toerisme-ontwikkeling en -bemarking en verklaarde toeristevoorkeure word benut om geskiktheidsaanwysers vir opname in 'n ruimtelike databasis van verskynsels te ondervang. Twee stelle toerisme-attraksies word konseptueel as veranderlikes gedefinieer, gekarteer en statisties geweeg vir MKE-modellering. Die produk is fynskaalkaarte vir die twee toerismeprodukte nadat MKE uitgevoer is volgens beredeneerde toepassingsreëls en laat vergelyking van die twee produkte toe. Die toepassing kan elders herhaal word vir ondernemer- en reguleringsbeplanning.
