Abstract

Applications of Geographic Information System (GIS) are still in its infancy in the Kerala Tourism perspective.  THE FUTURE OF KEALA Tourism lies in implementing a GIS based solution for its applications.  Some basic features like itinerary planner and destination location finder have been implemented in the official website of Kerala Tourism.  The full potential of GIS is yet to be realised.  In order to compete in the international market this areas needs to be strengthened.  This study gives in insight into the possible implementation of a GIS based solution in the master plan of Kerala Tourism.  Also the possible outputs which such a system can generate are also examined.
