With the recent and fast developments in technology, smart phones offer many advanced services apart from making calls, in this study, we present a tourist guide application (To Al-Ahsa) that works on the smart phones with Iphone Operating System. App provides tourism information about al-ahsa city.
One of the areas that users can benefit from smart phone applications is tourism. Many tourists visit a region or city in limited time, which may not be enough to visit everywhere. So that tourists are obliged to select attractive spots only. Usually they make this selection by searching web sites, magazines, or guidebooks. An application that can provide valuable information to guide the tourists in their trip can be so beneficial
Statement of the Problem
The goal of this application is to provide tourism and geographic services through mobile phone application that encourage tourists to travel around the city and reduce efforts and shorten the time to organize the city trip.
In this section we will derive
- (DFD) data flow diagram
“a technique used to model the system process”,
- (ERD) entity relationship diagram,
“used to model the system data”.
Entity Relationship Diagram
Data Flow Diagram Level 1
is an integrated development environment (IDE) containing a suite of software development tools .
is an Xcode editor that provides a graphical interface for the creation of user interface files.
Language and run time
: objective C.
: This is lightweight database engine that provides a small storage size and needs small memory so it is suitable for iOS application.
The proposed project (To AL-Ahsa) tourism application is developed using:
We have used Objective-C as the primary programming language of our App project. We have used an SQLite internal Database to accumulate all the needed data records in the App. All the six major parts (Touristic sites, restaurants, hotels, Events, Shopping Centers, Important Phone numbers) were saved in separate tables along with their related parameters
We used Xcode 4.6.2, main tool to develop iOS Apps. Along with that, we used the “Interface Builder” to integrate the Algorithms with the App interface. Moreover, we used Photoshop CS3 Version 10.0 in order to create the various designs and views.
In this paper, we present a mobile tourist guide application (To AL-Ahsa) that is designed for Al-Ahsa city and works on the smart phones with Iphone Operating System. The goal of this application is to provide tourism and geographic services through mobile phone application that encourage tourists to travel around the city and reduce efforts and shorten the time to organize the city trip.
In the future for further improvement, we would like to extend this application by including other cities. Another utilities can be by providing offline map and adding up to date information about spots and city services in the application’s database, also supporting different platforms (such as Android, and Windows).
