Los recursos tur´isticos son determinantes del atractivo de una regi´on y por lo tanto en su visitaci´on. As´i, los procesos de planeaci´on tur´istica debieran contar con una adecuada definici´on, caracterizaci´on y an´alisis de los recursos. Este trabajo contribuye a la caracterizaci´on y an´alisis de los recursos tur´isticos incluyendo a la dimensi´on espacial como una herramienta para entender las similitudes y diferencias dentro y entre las regiones de Chile. Usando datos del SERNATUR (2007), los resultados revelan similitudes y diferencias entre las regiones logrando distinguir al menos tres grupos funcionales. Adicionalmente en el plano comunal, se confirma a los recursos con jerarqu´ia internacional como potenciadores de sus ´areas vecinas. Los resultados sugieren mayor consideraci´on de la experiencia local en la planeaci´on. Touristic resources are an attractive determinant in a region and therefore of its visitation. In this line, for touristic planning process is required to consider accurate definition, characterization and analysis of its resources. This article contributes through characterization and analysis of touristic resources using a spatial dimension as a tool to get deeper insights about similarities and differences between and within Chilean regions. Using SERNATUR (2007) data, the result show differences and similarities between regions obtaining at least three functional groups. In a county level, those resources with higher hierarchy are confirmed to play a promoter role of its neighbors. These results suggest more consideration of local experiences in touristic planning process.
