Abstract: National and regional state transport regulatory authorities in developing countries have been monitoring traffic and collecting traffic data (traffic stream volume, density, speed etc.) as part of their traffic management role for many years but, generally they did not share this information with the public. Furthermore, due to spatial and temporal variations in traffic, roadways and weather conditions, travellers travelling within cities are not generally conversant with these prevailing conditions. The problem is persistent to the tourists, both domestic and international, visiting historical cities where in, information for tourists is both outdated and unreliable in term of leaflets and booklets. Advanced Traveller Information Systems (ATIS) which are one of the user services of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) aim at bridging this information gap by implementing computer, communication, information technologies and management strategies in order to provide the pre-trip and/or en-route information to the travellers about their travel options (mode choice, time of travel and route choice). Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) offer technology-based solutions to the compelling challenges confronting surface transportation systems. ITS helps the whole transport system to work most effectively and efficiently. ITS integrates users, transport systems, and vehicles through state-of-the-art information and communications technologies. A geographic information system (GIS) is a digital computer application designed for the capture, storage, manipulation, analysis and display of geographic information. Transportation professionals can use GIS to integrate mapping analysis into iv decision support for network planning and analysis, route planning and analysis, vehicle tracking, routing, asset management, inventory tracking and everything in between. In this thesis, an Advanced Traveller Information System for Jaipur city (ATIS Jaipur) has been developed in ArcGIS 9.3. This package provides complete information about Jaipur city such as road networks, historical places, hotels, auditoria, art galleries, museums, bus and railway stations. This package displays best path between an origin and destination or a set of places, paths to closest facilities on map and also provides path directions based on distance and travel time. Information regarding city bus routes has been included in this package. Information about tourist places has been included in the package like images and videos of tourist places, timing and fee information, guide availability and fee. ATIS Jaipur also provides tools for panning, zooming and printing of the Jaipur Map view.
