Abstract

The questionnaire method is becoming obsolete. Social media data contains textual, location and temporal information, making it possible to more effectively discover the factors influencing large-scale public intention to travel and to conduct spatio-temporal and thematic analysis. Based on Sina Weibo data posted by users who wanted to visit Xinjiang throughout 2022, we used latent Dirichlet allocation(LDA) models, term frequency–inverse document frequency(TF-IDF) algorithms, spatial autocorrelation and other theories and techniques to mine the data, and obtained the following conclusions:we got seven topics,and beautiful view was the factor with the highest proportion;tourists were driven by anticipation in the early period (January-May), and by specific things about the tourist destination in the peak period (June-August), and in the late period (September-December) had resistance susceptibility;focus on gourmet food was stronger in the west and south, and beautiful view was stronger in the more economically developed regions.
