Abstract

The implementation of IoT related technologies in tourism is promoting the achievement of smart tourism. In this context, Fifth generation (5G) technology, which aims to address the limitations of previous cellular systems, massively expands the implementation of IoT and gradually drives the Internet future to the edge. In order to facilitate the implementation, the work tries to formulate a definition of IoT enabled tourism and make a visualization review on the relevant literature to IoT enabled tourism in recent 10 years. The definition of IoT enabled tourism is helpful for extending the current research topics related to smart tourism. The visualization review identifies the intellectual bases and influential studies of IoT enabled tourism. Meanwhile, the outstanding cooperation relationships among authors, institutions and countries are detected out. These findings are helpful for the academic circle making further efforts on IoT enabled tourism and finally facilitating the achievement of smart tourism.
