Interactive Mobile Based Tour Guide

According to SAITM Research Symposium on Engineering Advancements 2013. Nowadays tourists expect to get personalized access to tourism information at any time, from anywhere through any media. Mobile tourism guides provide the user with such a ubiquitous access. Sri Lanka being a popular tourist destination entertains a large number of tourists each year. Tourists are issued a printed guide booklet to find out interesting places during the visit. Due to the lack of up to date information and navigation support, tourists are not able to visit all the attractions during a visit. Our researched was based on discovering a solution to improve this situation providing convenience to the visitors. This paper presents the work carried out in developing an interactive mobile tour guide application to replace the traditional tour guide booklet. Main features of the application are; virtual tour of important places located, voice-based information provider, location identifier and a map-based path selection function to select the best path to a specified destination within the premises. The application was developed based on the Android platform and delivered as a mobile application. Main goal of this project is to help the tourists to travel on their own and take full advantage of the visit without missing the main attractions (www. saitm.edu.lk).

Smart Travel Guide: Application for Mobile Phone

According to pooja D. Watkar, prof. M. R. shahade (4/3/2013). The application aims to detailed text, pictures, videos and other guidance information are provided, and so people can better understand the tourist attractions and make decision objectively. It has selected for you the best activities, hotels and restaurant in city. Flexible map display and control functions and location support are provided in Android for mobile system design. User can search the nearby attraction after he she configures the distance between the current location and the view spots. When the users move out of the current location, the mobile phone will automatically send its new position to the server side, and the corresponding attractions lists will be received by the user (www.ijrise.org).

Beneficiaries of the Study/Project

Tourist/Visitor. It will guide the visitors/tourist on their way to visit the place when they want to visit the area. They were be able to easily identify where the direction and location of the certain places, since they are visitor they will be guided with the use of the system.

Researchers. This research will be beneficial to the researchers in a way that they may able to develop their  research skills at the same time they will  be exposed to the real situation while conducting research that will developed their writing skills and confident. It will also serve as a reference to the net researcher who plans to conduct a study related to this.

Development Tools

Software Requirements

The following is the list of software requirements used for development and implementation of the system.

Development

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the set of markup symbols or codes inserted in a file intended for display on a World Wide Web browser page. The markup tells the Web browser how to display a Web page’s words and images for the user.

CSS Stands for “Cascading Style Sheet.” Cascading style sheets are used to format the layout of Web pages. They can be used to define text styles, table sizes, and other aspects of Web pages that previously could only be defined in a page’s HTML.

JavaScript is a programming language commonly used in web development. It was originally developed by Netscape as a means to add dynamic and interactive elements to websites. While JavaScript is influenced by Java, the syntax is more similar to C and is based on ECMAScript, a scripting language developed by Sun Microsystems.

The researchers choose these platforms for developing an application for migration of web apps and cross-linking user interfaces that can be produced in spite of giving add-on features within our application. This is Primary programming language in creating this application.

Apache Cordova

It’s a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. This allows you to build mobile applications locally.

The researchers choose this because this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
