Administration- to position tourist objects (hotels, restaurants,
sights, event location or other touristic objects) onto map. To
integrate tourist information and GIS data, the location of each
tourist object, to be integrated on to map has to be identified by
geographic coordinate. All user can identify the object location
of their objects by selecting the objects position on the map.
After positioning the object, the geographical coordinates will
be calculated by the GIS system and will be stored in the GIS
database. At map creation the object will be represented on the
map by means of a meaningful object symbol, the object name,
the category if the object is an hotel. The object symbols are
linked with the object homepages to enable further navigation.
Application-to search for tourist objects. On a functional view,
the application uses a geographic search to perform complex
geographic queries to search for tourist objects like hotels,
restaurants, event location, etc. A thematic mapper is used to
integrate tourism information and GIS data build tourist maps.
A hotel search can be a time-based search and extends the map
with availability information of rooms. To guarantee a sensible
use, the user will have the possibility to zoom in 7 out to change
the scale of the map, to scroll in the map and to print as well
(Pühretmair, 2000).
Designing and marketing a geoinformation product requires an
approach, which does not start from data collection methods but
from he user's need: the geoinformation product must provide
an information useful and valuable to the user. Content,
appropriate data quality and presentation must meet the user's
expectations. Most tourism information system still has
backlogs in using new visualization capabilities. The approach
described in this paper represents a new approach to integrate
GIS data and tourism data on Web is implemented so many
people can share the data. Dynamically generated, interactive
tourist maps offer a variety of trend-setting functionalities like
integration of vector shapes, images and text, high performance
zooming and panning inside of graphics without reloading data,
support of scripting languages in combination with the
possibility of all related technologies. Tourist maps in
information system offer a powerful, clear and user-friendly
access to tourism data with great benefits for tourists and
substantial advantages for tourism information systems because
maps change from static raster graphics to interactive graphical
representations allowing the presentation of the most extensive
information possible thus satisfying the demands of the users.
When people serve and publish data on the Internet, other
people can access and browse these data simultaneously.
Because of this, GIS on the Web is an in expensive method for
reaching a vast audience. Both offers the tourist more exact and
more meaningful information to meet their quality claims
