This article presents a new planning tool for natural resource-based tourism development, the Tourism Opportunity Spectrum. It is based on Clarke and Stankey's (1979) Recreation Opportunity Spectrum and presents a framework for tourism development incorporating factors of accessibility (both transportation and marketing channels), characteristics of tourism infrastructure, degrees of social interaction (host/guest, crowding), other nonadventure uses, acceptability of regimentation. The responsibility for these factors under the TOS is discussed and its use is illustrated using examples from Canada's Western Arctic.
