Abstract: This paper presents a simple application of the travel cost method conducted using geographical information system software. This permits analysis of the impact of various assumptions concerning the definition of visitor outset origins and routing to recreation sites. Results suggest that varying these assumptions could lead to substantial impacts upon central estimates of consumer surplus.
Description: This research was completed while Ian Bateman was on study leave at the Department of Resource Management, Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand.
