ABSTRACT
This paper provides an initiative for the application of GIS (Geographic Information System) in the tourism industry in Albania. It is applied in Elbasan, which is an important destination in this country for both native and foreign tourists. The application of GIS consists on bringing geo-referenced data of Elbasan region, provided mainly by the District Office, into digitized maps, assigning all objects to thematic layers. The results show that GIS may help to the development of tourism industry in Elbasan region in order to become more competitive not only in Albania but also in the regional and international tourism market.
