Using GIS Web and iOS Travel Apps to Stimulate Tourism Industry

Supergeo cooperated with Chiayi City Government to build the a GIS website and GIS travel applications for Apple users to stimulate tourism growth and therefore create more local employment opportunities through government assistance programs of a music festival, handicraft souvenirs, agricultural products, etc.

This project aims to assist local stores that match specified conditions in collecting coordinates of stores, performing Nearest Neighbor Analysis, and using spatial data to promote the culture of local traditional industries.

To achieve this, a GIS website and mobile apps were developed to record the data about human resource management, and construction of aesthetics for the living space and then formulate creative marketing campaigns to increase jobs and accelerate urban economic revitalization in the City.

The website established with SuperGIS Server includes front-end and back-end platforms. The back-end platform enables administrators to easily upload and manage data usage, as well as showing the audited data on the front-end platform for query.

The two iOS travel apps integrate with PR (Pattern Recognition) and AR (Augmented Reality) technologies, allowing Apple users to find and show the locations of nearby stores through iPhone or iPad. Also, Google Map Display was adopted as the basemap to diversify and facilitate utility of apps’ functions for better route planning. Chiayi Travel Guide App allows users to apply a variety of functions such as tourist attraction query tool and store recommendations to obtain useful travel information for better itinerary planning.

In the near future, SuperGIS Network Server will be employed to perform network analysis, assisting administrators in obtaining results that match with the real-time environment and maintaining network data through management tools. Besides, new Android travel apps will be also created to make travel planning more efficient and easier using up-to-date information and interactive maps.
