In tourism, it is important to provide optimal information for tourists on the spot. Almost all of these information (Spot-information) are provided by the local government. However, the local government provides the similar information to all tourists without considering the individual characteristic, and it cannot match with tourists’ needs. To respect tourists’ needs, using word of mouth information in the internet is one of the most effective method according to related surveys. We developed a multimedia share system to provide Spot-information for tourists by locationbased information. The multimedia share system can recommend multimedia contents (tourism information) to tourists, using location information. In addition, tourists can upload multimedia contents to the tourism information library using the system. This paper describes the multimedia share system to provide Spot-information for tourists by location-based information.
