Diagnostic analysis is a necessary tool for tourism planning, because it highlights the encouraging and restrictive factors for tourism in a specific area, indicating, at the same time, the necessary measures to be taken in order to ensure an optimal development. In the tourism planning process, decision makers have an image of the vulnerability of the territory to various categories of risks and consequently, they may adopt a variety of solutions and models, customized according to the existing natural conditions. In accordance with the restrictions imposed by these, one can establish the new locations and choose the placement of facilities and equipment in the field.
