The authors of every paper have a combined practitioner and academic interest in understanding and promoting this important interrelationship, the pursuit of which avoids the ills of geo-exploitation Hose Geotourism has had a key role over the last decade or so in such promotional work and has undoubtedly made a major contribution to bringing geology to the attention of a greater number of the populace than was thitherto achieved. Geotourism is a relatively newly recognised but rapidly developing form of geology-based tourism. It was initially recognised and defined in the United Kingdom UK where it was also the first focus of dedicated university research Hose Its first widely published definitions Hose , , were specifically related to on-site interpretative provision for the purpose of geoconservation. These early definitions and the discussions around them also recognised the significant underpinnings provided to geotourism by social history and industrial archaeology, elements later included in most geopark developments. Two already published Australasian-based dedicated geotourism books Dowling and Newsome ; Newsome and Dowling both adopted the geological basis of geotourism and supported the original approach adopted by Hose , It also highlights, as do the two Australasian-based books, that modern geotourism and the discussion around it has spread far from its UK origins and been globally embraced.

Europe is also where the first journal dedicated to geotourism, Geoturystyka, was founded in Poland in The International Association for Geotourism, or IAGt, was also concomitantly founded in Poland, and there are also decidedly national geotourism organisations such as that established in Italy. The main reason for the original UK development of geotourism was to promote and provide some funding for geoconservation Hose , The development and management of such geoconservation strategies at a regional and national scale, that also support geotourism, have been pioneered in the UK and are described in the paper on Wales Burek, this volume.

Possibly the major natural global geotourism interest is in cave tourism, although this can also be expanded to old mines and waterfalls.

In this set of papers, the former are considered at the national scale for Italy Garofano and Govoni, this volume and the latter as case studies from Brazil Moreira, this volume and Scotland Gordon, this volume , although the waterfalls considered lie at each end of the size spectrum. Both cave and for that matter, mine and waterfall tourism can be traced back to at least the seventeenth century in Europe Hose Sometimes portrayed as a minor aspect of tourism provision, geotourism is at the casual level one of the most widely practiced forms of natural souvenir collecting; most tourists have at some time collected a pebble or two, even if only when a child at the beach.

He later went on to publish the genesis of the modern illustrated geology field guide Mantell that was so popular it ran to three editions.

It can still be read with profit today and is much sought after.

Given that study and similar early ones from the USA and Canada, it is then rather odd that National Geographic ignored such domestic, let alone European studies on, geology-focussed geotourism in promoting a more generalist geographical approach. That approach with its emphasis on the natural and human attributes that make a place worth visiting Tourtellot is just a rebranding of long-standing types of already recognised tourism provision.

Its adoption, especially in geoparks and protected landscapes, could actually compromise geoconservation.

Geoparks had in much of their geotourist provision already recognised that geology and its associated landscape have a major effect on the economic, social and cultural history of an area.

Whilst the majority of geoparks have long embraced the geological approach to geotourism, there has been the recent exception of the organising committee of a geoparks conference, held within a Portuguese geopark noteworthy for the excellence of its geological interpretative provision and geoconservation work, remarkably opting in late to promote the National Geographic approach.

This adoption is despite the acceptance and promotion of the original geology-focussed approach and definition Hose by UNESCO in its initial geopark documentation Patzak and Eder ; UNESCO as a fundamental rationale and underpinning for geoparks worldwide. Geotourism with a particular emphasis on rural localities and geoparks has burgeoned from the opening of the present century.

Geotourism is a developing field of international academic study. The papers in this special issue of Geoheritage are as geographically and topically comprehensive a set, despite those individuals approached because of the quality of their work who were either unable to prepare or eventually submit a finished paper, as it was possible to commission from academic practitioners with an interest in generating a sound theoretical and analytical underpinning.

Its papers cover a range of interests from pure definitions of geotourism to a variety of studies related to specific geotourism topics and destinations.

Perhaps the two major geographical omissions are papers from the USA and China. Series of articles were included focusing on the history and varied uses of specific products such as a single metal, gem, food crop, or agricultural product, or an archaeological discovery.

Occasionally an entire month's issue would be devoted to a single country, past civilization, a natural resource whose future is endangered, or other theme.

In recent decades, the National Geographic Society has unveiled other magazines with different focuses. Whereas in the past, the magazine featured lengthy expositions, recent issues have shorter articles.

Notes and further reading

In , GHG began building the group of staff photographers and providing them with advanced tools including the latest darkroom. National Geographic photography quickly shifted to digital photography for both its printed magazine and its website. In subsequent years, the cover, while keeping its yellow border, shed its oak leaf trim and bare table of contents, to allow for a full page photograph taken for one of the month's articles.

Issues of National Geographic are often kept by subscribers for years and re-sold at thrift stores as collectibles. Hang your heads in shame and ask yourself if a single NG editor since would be proud of you today for this lamentable effort? Thinking I had used an incorrect password I tried a password reset, and discovered NG now no longer even recognises my login.

Other emails have remained unanswered. And the responses I did receive took quite some time to come.

Disgraceful treatment of customers. Their latest reply advised me to contact apple. And of course apple cannot take responsibility for a third party app.
