Sight Seeing App with Android

Published on Sep 03, 2023


In the current scenario there isn’t any application that would help a tourist to get information about the place they are currently visiting in their mobile phone.Our application Sight Seeing is aimed to solve this problem.

In current tourism system, whenever a tourist visits famous spots, to know more about the place he hires a guide. The hired guide then narrates history of the place. The proposed system doesn’t require a physical guide. The Mobile application installed on the mobile of tourist can act as a guide.Without having a guide, it will help one to get information of the place in their mobile and check out the nearest places also with the help of our application.

Mobile Technology is now set to help boost tourism in various fields. It will be used to apply mobile applications technology to create specific visitor information for tourist attractions to effectively turn the tourist's mobile phone into their very own personalized tour guide. Mobile phone technology presents huge potential for the future of visitor interpretation at tourist attractions. People want fast, efficient and easy access to information of all kinds and tourism is no different. While tourism presents considerable potential for the use of new mobile technologies, we currently have little understanding of how tourists organize their activities or of the problems they face. This project presents an ethnographic study of city tourists' practices that draws out a number of implications for designing tourist technology.

Existing System:

1. Existing tourism information systems only provide information about facility and site map a tourist attraction. a lot of tourists from other cities or country will have a trouble finding the attraction they want to go because of not knowing the route to go there

2. Online Travel Guide consists of several sub-systems that designed into a complex system to facilitate the tourists visiting the tourist attraction

3. A good design of the system is required to optimize it despite its novel size and complexity

Proposed System

2.1 To provide best travelling services to the customers and travel agents.

2.2 To provide a search platform where a tourist can find their tour places according to their choices.

2.3 To promote responsible and interesting tourism so that people can enjoy their holidays at their favorable places.

2.5 To create and promote forms of tourism that provide healthy interaction opportunities for tourists and locals and increase better understanding of different cultures, customs, lifestyles, traditional knowledge and believes.

2.6 To provide a better way to connect with various events.

2.7 Information on tourist attractions, cities, and provinces.

2.8 Map and navigation system.

2.9 Temperature and weather information.

2.10 Searching places based on location.

2.11 Ability to create a personal profile and keep a history of visited places.
