Abstract

This chapter locates a set of points of tourist spots distributed on a peripheral mountain area by GIS mapping, illustrates that accessibility and neighbor to community are the influencing factors of tourism cluster in a peripheral mountain area, and further analyzes the benefits of tourism cluster of establishing cooperation network by tourism associations. This research investigates the linkages and local impacts between tourism and agriculture of a well-known organic agricultural area of fruits in Taiwan. This research aims to demonstrate the increased tourism development due to the tourist attractions of organic agriculture and religious spots in a peripheral region through a tourism clustering process. By collecting a set of points of tourist spots specified to GIS slope raster and point density surface, tourism-agriculture linkages and their local impacts are demonstrated.
