Quelle carte touristique pour La Réunion ?

Abstract : The origins of this article reside in a questioning by the President of the Reunion Island Federation for Tourism (Fédération Réunionnaise du Tourisme) bearing on the implied and well-hackneyed classicism of the format of the tourist map in its graphic representation. As a « constructed and produced object », the nature of the tourism map is a mere reflection of a particular thought developed around this activity by both researchers (in tourism) and by those involved in local development, in the case of Réunion. The crux of this question raised in this paper is therefore not so much the redefinition of the tourist map as the rethinking of the tourist potential. Without evading the question raised by the president of the federation, the aim here is to « play the game » by analysing a corpus of tourist maps of this Indian Ocean island
