Kartenbasierte touristische Location-based Services sind zwar zahlreich vorhanden, wenige bieten allerdings nutzerbasierte und Kontext-abhängige Möglichkeiten. In dieser Arbeit wird die Konzeption einer Open Travel Map vorgestellt und durch eine Implementierung validiert.

The overwhelming touristic data collections currently available to any user is a problem of great concern nowadays. Due to the large amounts of information the user has to assess, the process of decision making became more and more time consuming and difficult to complete [20]. In an attempt to overcome this issue, systems that effectively assist users by providing access to relevant information should be developed. With this purpose, there are several applications in the field of tourism that offer detailed travel guides, descriptions of points of interest and even allow users to create their own travel routes. The present thesis focuses on the development of a mobile location based service that assists users in creating and searching for travel routes, the OpenTravelMap platform. In contrast to other existing platforms, the OpenTravelMap platform not only provides tools that facilitate the process of route creation and route search, but also integrates features that aim to enhance these functionalities. These features refer to the connection with other platforms in order to access external resources and a context aware recommender system. The outcome of this thesis, the OpenTravelMap platform, aims to be a worthwhile contribution to the field of tourism in view of the benefits supplied to its users.
