Review of the assessment methods of abiotic nature sites used in geotourism

assessment method, geomorphosite, geosite, geotourism, scoring methods, triangulation method


The article is a review and its purpose is to analyse and evaluate the valorisation methods of geosites. These methods are the subject of numerous scientific articles. For this article, selected were sixty different assessment methods which are 1/ original methods; 2/ methods previously described in the literature; 3/ modifications of one or more previous methods; 4/ compilations of various methods; or 5/ methods without strictly defined criteria. What all these methods have in common is the fact that they belong to the scoring methods, and they differ in the number of criteria, the accuracy of the description of these criteria and the scoring used. The most frequently used groups of criteria, according to which valorisation of geosites is carried out include: scientific criteria, potential for use along with tourist criteria, and additional criteria (including cultural and aesthetic criteria). All the assessment methods presented so far in the literature are subjective methods, and the valorisation result largely depends only on the knowledge and experience of the expert who carries out the valorisation itself. The author of this article proposes to use the expert triangulation method to reduce the subjectivity of the results obtained as a result of valorisation.

Anna Chrobak, Uniwersytet Pedagogiczny im. KEN w Krakowie, Instytut Geografii, Katedra Geologii

Anna Chrobak, Ph.D, Pedagogical University of Cracow, Institute of Geography, Department of Geology. Research is conducted in the following fields: 1) physical geography, especially geomorphology (mass processes – landslides); 2) geodiversity analysis of selected areas in Europe; 3) geotourism – inventory and quantitative assessment of geosites and 4) (geo)tourists preferences.
