Tourism is one of the highly dynamic areas which already extensively are using the available Internet technologies. The Semantic Web as the next generation web, gives opportunity of having background knowledge about the meaning of web sources stored in a machine-readable way using appropriate ontologies. Several publicly available tourism ontologies already exist today. However, information management solutions for tourism are still at an early stage from a semantic point of view. Concept of tourism “ecosystems” gives opportunity to implement successful tourism sector strategy and address the system-level challenges that lead to build up the institutions that support tourism and solving the problems which includes inadequate physical and social infrastructure and insufficient attention to environmental issues. Based on previous principles authentic tourism ecosystem ontology is created and presented in this paper. Open source software OWLGrEd was used for ontology creation and a set of mutually compatible software tools for creating and implementation of semantic solutions, such as WAMP server, ARC2, PHP, MySQL, and SPARQL. Proposed conceptual solution can be used for development of the next generation tourism information systems.
