The Best in Travel feature, now in its second edition, takes a hard look at changing travel costs, travel brand performance, and – of course – overall value.  Personally, I think they made some great picks including Estes Park, Carmel-by-the-Sea and Albuquerque in the Top 7 for domestic value travel.  Lots of outdoor opportunities to relax among some amazing scenery!

What’s our part in the process?

We’re’s premiere data and analysis partner.  Starting with a detailed understand of story focus, we identify great data points, sources, and difference makers to power a ranking methodology.  Then we go out and get the content!  Often that means working with our great partners.  But just as often it means gathering the information ourselves, converting public datasets into something usable, or combining content from different sources to derive a great ranking factor.  Behind this work sits years of experience and our spatial processing toolset.
