Abstract

During travelling, travelers usually have some sort of travels preferences such as its purposes, types or chosen categories and its destination/attractions. To ensure fully indulge travel, tourist usually needed instruction or guidance and travel map during those trips. A map is used to show the precise location of each destination. Some travelers travels without knowing the exact location of the places such as museums, restaurants, park or shopping district that yet hasn’t been known to them before, therefore in need of a tourism map. As a fact, tourism maps are one of the most common groups of cartographic documents since it has lots of diversity in contents, subject and publication title due to the increasing popularity and diverse forms of tourism activities. In this research, coordinates values were taken and saved in a database using ddmm’ss” (degree, minutes, seconds) format whereas Google maps reads value in the format of latitude and longitude which led the system to implement automatic conversions in order to be functional with Google Maps. PHP programming, JavaScript, MySQL database with other assisting software suitable in extracting and converting coordinates value to latitude, longitudes value was used in making this program. This system really helps travelers knowing the exact location and assist in determining the chosen destination.
