Web based GIS or internet GIS became more useful tools for tourism industry, which presents a platform that brings products and services to the tourists. Instead of various tourist guides for the location the tourist might face some problem related to find a hotel, travel cost, mode of transportation, road connectivity etc. The study proposed to develop a web mapping application for Sivasagar Tourism a district of Assam, India using Geospatial technology. The data that published in Geoserver are import from Postgres Sql database to Apache tomcat server. This district is a famous destination for tourists as well as others visitors because of its historical footprints and its exotic locations. This study considers web-based GIS application towards promoting tourism and providing a smarter way to the visitors to access spatial orientation of the town. The web map application will be published for future use with a website on the internet .Web page is design using JavaScript, HTML, Cascade style sheet with the open layers as base map for overlaying the layers.
