Abstract

The fast advancement in information and communication techniques has resulted in the development of highly informative e-tourism Web sites. There are a number of Web sites all over the world that employ data mining to help tourists, but they have yet to fully satisfy e-tourists. Therefore, we propose the use of ontologies for classifying and querying (SPARQL query) for details like accommodation, meal, shopping, and site seeing for developing a better e-tourism Web site. In our paper, we propose Dijkstra’s Algorithm with Bitmasking to provide the e-tourist an optimal itinerary that starts from an accommodation which is best suitable for the tourist and ends where all the aforementioned requirements get fulfilled while also working within time constraints. The e-tourist needs only to mention his/her requirements as input and can immediately obtain an optimal path that fulfills all his/her requirements, with minimal time and cost.
