KIOSK: Ship and Tourist Information System

Where visitors are staying, a bright information board is magically attractive. The effect is even greater if you can easily navigate the screen. dbh Logistics IT AG (dbh) is setting up impressive tourist information systems for “buten un within”.

Ship, tourist and location information

We provide you with the information software for coastal tourist centres and individualize them according to your requirements. We can also organise the selection, procurement and installation of suitable hardware.

The software system consists of two modules that can be used independently of each other:

  • Ship information system
  • Tourist and location information
KIOSK Touristeninformation

Perfect attraction for guests

On a map of the region, the viewer sees symbols for all passenger ships, cargo ships and other ships based on AIS data. Current ship positions and movements are displayed automatically.

Detailed information such as ship photo and information on dimensions, status, speed and port of destination can be displayed for each ship displayed. The user or an automatic time control switch between multiple maps, e.g. from different port areas or waterways.

An event can also trigger the change of display, for example when a ship reaches a defined position (geofencing). Live images of a webcam can also be displayed on request.

Tourist Information System 1In this module, tourist or location-related information is displayed with particularly simple menu navigation.

Typically, these include regional event information, information on tourist and cultural offers, weather forecasts, tide calendars, timetables and also advertising. With special functions such as newstickers, picture albums, etc., the application can be made even more lively and interesting.

For display in your corporate design and for easy management of the content, we realize the right presentation frame via an integrated content management system. Within this framework, you can easily update and set your content yourself without any further programming. The use of existing Internet representations is possible.
