Economics and Innovative Technologies


Abstract: Tourism is a strategy for country to increase its income. Digital technologies are currently used to help improve tourism, for example with information about tourist areas through the website or Mobile Apps. Database is required as the basic infrastructure for implementing system when to support tourism. In this research, we discussed about the database model that can stored tourism data. Tourism databases such as warehouses are rich in information about tourism. Tourism information can be in the structured or unstructured form. Database development is an important part of enhancing development supported by digital technology. In this research, ontology is applied for database development and it produces the ontologies that could be utilized for gastronomic tourism.
