Location-based Service (LBS) Application Design as Jeneponto District Tourist Information Media


Location-based service (LBS) is an application that can be used to show the location of a place so that it is easier for users to find their destination. The existence of the Android operating system, which is known as an open operating system, helps developers in creating applications that can be implemented on the Android operating system. The implementation of LBS at tourist locations in Jeneponto Regency is to make it easier for people to find tourist locations. Based on this, research was carried out on the design of the LBS application as a promotional media for the Jeneponto district. This research is a type of applied research, where researchers use the GRAPPLE (Gudline for Rapid Application Engineering) method, where in this method each research step is carried out sequentially, starting from the stages of data collection, planning, design, writing program code, and testing. Features used on Android devices include the Global Positioning System (GPS), which are supported by the Google Maps API. The test results in this research show that LBS can be used to search for tourist locations in Jeneponto Regency, so that it can become a medium for information on tourist locations.
