In this paper, we present our design of a GIS (Geographic Information System) to provide tourist information to visitors via the WWW. The system can help a tourist, even when he is not in Hong Kong, to find information about routes, buildings, underground railways and train stations. Further, the GIS also allows a tourist to interact with the displayed map by zooming, scrolling, panning, finding out a walking path between two locations with a time estimate, and linking to other WWW locations of tourist hotspots in Hong Kong.
