Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region lies in northwest China. Due to advantages of geography and resources, it has not only various human tourism resources with distinctive local characteristics and ethnic characteristics, but also multi-level peculiar natural tourist attractions. This research focuses on the problems described above and simply builds a classic tour route architecture deriving from complex tourism resources information of Xinjiang. The architecture serves various tourists with different requirements. We filter tourism resources information of Xinjiang and store the records of selected touring routes in Access database, according to recommendations from Xinjiang Tourism Administration and Xinjiang Guides Association. We develop a prototype of WebGIS based query system of Xinjiang classic tour routes which uses Google Map as map application server. This system takes typical travel sites, classic tour routes and tourists' requirements into account and rationally selects classic tour route to provide assistance for user's tour route planning. The whole system is composed of three modules, i.e. basic database, trips decision assistance and classic travel information forum. At present, this system has finished its first phase, which contains classic tour routes identified by the tourism management agencies and relevant experts. In next phase, it will use web2.0 techniques to develop an improved classic tour routes query system of Xinjiang, which is characterized of participation of tourists and the public in obtaining a more reasonable and dynamic classic tour route architecture. In the future, the system will provide service for mobile consumers.
