We are looking to gather information for a vacation planning tool.
Some of the data gathering is simply finding, cleaning and bringing existing, freely-available content into a spreadsheet / database structure. Some of the work will require a little more case-by-case activity.
The base information covers all the countries in the world. For those countries that are too large to be treated as one element (e.g. USA, China) the focus is on regions of those countries as well as the country itself. This initial data will come mostly from the CIA World Factbook.
The second data set is climate. Most of this should be available from the UN data sets.
The third data set is holidays, festivals, events that occur in the countries. These could be public holidays, major celebrations (monarch's birthday, for example).
The fourth data set is destinations. This refers to places you might go to in the countries. These destinations could come from lists such as the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 1000 Places To See Before You Die and similar.
The first two data sets should be rapid to gather with a quick download of the relevant information, linking / VLOOKUP to bring them into the spreadsheet. The third and fourth ones might be a little less automated.
We have created a (read only) spreadsheet which details the information required:

Essentially, the work is to fill in the gaps in the four numbered tabs in this spreadsheet. The first sheet has an estimate of the number of cells this means, but should not be taken as 100% accurate.
