The study of world records suggests that the application of GIS in planning tourism management started for the first time in the early 1990's, but the development of the application of GIS in this field has not been as rapid as its development in other areas. Obviously, this ability offers plenty of help for planners and tourists to do their own planning.
The planners use this ability to identify possible deficiencies and weaknesses, as well as the trend of changes to plan for improving conditions and the development of tourism activities.
The purpose of this study is to investigate and describe the functions of geographic information systems in the emerging tourism industry in the country. This research is descriptive-analytical and technical.
The results of this study indicate that GIS can be used to estimate different information needs, estimate the indicator, and generally help planners and tourists, as well as to monitor and evaluate tourism activities.
