How to use the Open Data Hub’s Tourism Data Browser?

This how to explains the necessary steps to access and retrieve data from the Open Data Hub’s tourism domain.

Data Browsing and Exploring

In order to access the data in the tourism domain, launch a browser and point it to http://tourism.opendatahub.bz.it/. On the right-hand side of the page, you can see a box that shows the permissions to access data that you have as a (non-logged in) user, while the remainder of the page provides an overview of the various component of the project and its architecture.

If you try to access the ODH Data item in the top menu, you will see that it is empty. In order to access data, you need to click on the Login button on the top right corner of the page.

Write the username (email address) and password that was provided to you and click on the Log in. You will be redirected to the home page as a logged in user and from here, you will see the box with the permissions you have to access the various types of data.

If you now try to access the ODH Data item in the top menu, you will be able to select some dataset. As an example, Figure 21 shows what is available in the ODH Data ‣ Activities & Pois ‣ Winter filter - in this case a list of activities that can be done during the winter on the snow.

The page allows to further filter the results, by using search strings and/or the list of tags underneath, to move between pages of results, and to change language of the interface (although at the moment the page is not fully translated in all languages!)

If you click on one of the images in the list will pop up an overlay with more detailed information about that activity.
