Abstract—Until recently, people searched for travel destinations by browsing brochures obtained from their local travel agent, but many people now use the Internet instead. However, typical destination retrieval systems on travel websites do not improve the efficiency of the destination retrieval process. In this paper, we propose an association retrieval method to search for destinations using feature vectors composed of impression words. We implement a prototype system based on this retrieval method and evaluate its effectiveness. Finally, we propose and design a system that uses the association retrieval method for exploratory searches.
Index Terms—Association retrieval, destination image, retrieval interface, retrieval process.
