This study intends to innovate an application of information system infrastructure to support the tourism of the city of Semarang. This application is developed for the community that needs information on tourism. This is based on the findings that a large part of the community is not aware of the infrastructure of tourism available in the city of Semarang. To produce a good application that meets the needs of users, this research method uses the Software Development Life Cycle. The system analysis model uses Unified Modelling Language (UML). This model facilitates the development and understanding of applications to be developed. The application uses web service because these web services are the best choice for web applications and mobile applications in general. Web service is built as an information gateway for tourists to travel to the city of Semarang. The benefits of this research can provide convenience in knowing the tourism infrastructure available to the community, especially tourists of Semarang city. In this application, we obtained an analysis and visualization of the integrated information infrastructure of tourism. This application is in the form of a mobile application.
