Tourism is a rapidly developing sector contributing significantly to economic growth and development. Despite its growing relevance for cartographic and geographical information system in the field of tourism, there is a dearth of demographic information and analysis related to distributional patterns of tourism, particularly domestic tourism in low-income countries. This paper fills the gap by mapping spatial regional analysis of domestic tourist outflows in India using exploratory spatial data analysis. The method is a set of GIS spatial statistical techniques that are useful in detecting patterns of hot-spots, clustering and suggesting spatial regimes. To develop insights regarding inter-temporal trends, we examine two rounds of nationally representative household survey data (conducted in 2008-09 and 2014-15) on domestic tourism in India. We undertake an inter-temporal analysis to provide vital information regarding the changing nature of the tourism sector in India. While changing sets of mapping result indicate new direction for tourism development. We also identify hot spot and outflow directions to inform stakeholders regarding resource allocation and developmental planning.
