Abstract: Due to the lack of regional integrated consideration, scattered settings, and excessive distribu-tion of information, it is difficult for individual vehicle users to obtain updated, accurate and continuous guiding information from existing tourist signs. To address this problem, this paper develops a three-level tourist guiding system at the regional entrance, within the region, and in vicinity of the tourism area based on the travel demand of individual vehicle users in suburban area. Then the paper discusses the design prin-ciples and methods for the second level guiding signs, and proposes a methodology to determine the loca-tion of tourist signs. Based on the importance classification of tourism areas and road nodes, the guiding coverage of different tourist areas and the guiding capacity of different road nodes can be obtained. Finally, the paper illustrates the application of the proposed method in Pingshan County.
