Abstract

As tourism has evolved, it has continued to utilise technological advances. There appear to be many ethical issues associated with technology usage in tourism evolution. Preliminary analysis of this evolution is undertaken using archival source materials and face to face interviews. An illustrative case study is used to investigate tourism links with technological advances and highlighting potential ethical issues related to such links. This initial study demonstrates the existence of a rich tourism technology history hitherto scarcely investigated. A method to structure the associated data is developed which linking tourism, technology and ethics. This is an initial study which aims to generate interest in this new area. As such the data collected is limited and the new structure is embryonic. This is a new area of investigation; Tourism Technology Ethics. The outline Chronological Taxonomy is novel and potential valuable across all empirical research disciplines.
