The purpose of the project is to develop a distributed database system for tourist application by utilizing the knowledge and skills gaining from this subject. This project is chosen to enhance the technical skills that are acquired from lectures and lab exercises; every phase of this project includes implementation of various programming aspects of the subject. Working on this of project gives us a better experience that can be used in developing real time projects in coming future.

This project is nothing but developing a distributed database system for tourism/tourist application. Various phase of this project involves a database with several tables linked and has tourist information and in phase two we will be developing a standard web page that linked to the tourist database to retrieve tourist information.
