Abstract: In the process of society modernization, alone with the enhancement of people's living standard, as one of the most popular leisure, tourism is developed in a rapid way. People attach more and more importance to the development of tourism. They also require new service quality and management level. With the development of computer science and internet, a new technology has been used to modern tourism. Geographic Information System (GIS) technology provides a service and management platform to modern tourism. It makes people easily and expediently to acquire, query, amend, and analyses the latest tourism information only if you have a computer and internet. In the recent years, positioning technology and wireless communication are developed fleetingly; it makes the function of GIS platform movably, you can achieve all functions the platform provided on a mobile device. In modern intense competition of the telecommunications industry, wireless operators have to find out a revolutionary way to create new profit points or profit growth. In all kinds of wireless add-value operations, Location-Based Services (LBS) are one of the most potential one. Location-Based Services(LBS), which is offered by some cell phone networks as a way to send custom advertising and other information to cell-phone subscribers based on their current location, it has already become a new profit growth for a mobile agency. Once users have a mobile communication device, mobile LBS can provide services based on geography information and location information to users according to their requirement. This thesis is an application of the complex of GIS, LBS at tourism industry. It includes positioning technology, wireless communication technology, database technology and computer programme. I propose a tourism information system for supporting the location based service of GIS applications. This system includes four components: positioning technology, wireless communication, establishment of GIS server and database, and security problems of the whole system. GIS server is the main point, I propose two solutions, and they are Java solution and ArcIMS solution. At last, a comparison between them is given.
