This project proposes a study of international cooperation, from the research Stage Scholarship abroad (BEPE), linked to research renewal project developed with the aid of FAPESP (nº 2014/16572-6) at graduation in tourism (UNESP). We propose to meet international methodologies identification of tourist infrastructure in the visitation of industrial complexes, for purposes of applying the Brazilian cases, more specifically the municipality of Jundiaí-SP. For this, with the help of architect Enrique Larive López that we will assist in the identification of infrastructure and industrial goods through tools of Geographic Information System (GIS) used and worked in the SEVLAB lab in Seville - Spain that can be incorporated into the Train of Memory Project which we are a part. Second time, aim to perform a case study in Villanueba del Rio y Minas, in the province of Andalusia, as well as in other Spanish cities comparable to our object of study in Brazil, in order to master inventory tools in identifying and analyzing tourist infrastructure. We understand that these tools, in addition to aid in the identification of rail sets, also collaborate in identifying tourist infrastructures present in these spaces, whereas tourism is an alternative of use and maintenance of these places as representing the formation of cities.
