摘要: 米切尔以反映旅游业特征的需求、供给、联系为列,目的、结构、区位三大层面为行,建立起概念矩阵模型。本文阐释这一模型,并将其具体化为旅游地理学研究体系。最后给出应用实例,指出这个模型对一些命题单一、针对性强、又很具体的旅游业可以提供一种有益的系统思维方式。

Abstract: Based on the six concepts which are demand, Supply, linkage, purpose. structure and location.L. Mitchell established a three-by-three conceptual matrix to serve as a systematic model for the research on the geography of tourism.The author explained the model in details, and pointed out that the model reveals the fundamental characteristics of the tourism industry. A sector of the economy(demand, supply. linkage), covers the main research aspects (purpose, structure, location) and indicates their interrelated ideas and interactional relationships. So the framework is logical and flexible enough to be used as a device for the formulation of research considerations and the focusing of research efforts.Based on the model the author developed a concrete research system in the geography of tourism by filling the primary relevant concerns in each cell and indicated the research directions and emphases by rows and columns. Meanwhile. the author emphasized that geographers of tourism should broaden their scope and be familiar with more fields related to tourism since the tourism science is a complex embracing various integrated disciplines. But the research efforts should lay on the aspects which are different from others.Finally, an example of practical use was given. It is assumed that managers who are responsible for the successful operation of a tourism complex must firstly consider the supply of tourism goods and the place of supply, and them the demand, the place of demand and the linkages. A series of considerations about supply. demand and linkage were stated with regard to purpose, structure and location in order to confirm that the model can provide a valuable mode of thinking to solve problems which are encountered during the tourist development.
