Abstract: The Jeju special self-governing province deployed BLE Beacons at 21 major tourist attractions and offering them through Beacon SDK for smart tourism app developers. In this paper, we develop a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacon app for smart tourism to revitalize the traditional market which is losing competitiveness due to the large-scale shopping mall. We represent the traditional market as a zone type of complex sightseeing spot, a sales area as a sub-zone type, a walkway as a line type, and shops as POIs. The user can view the location and route of the stamp Beacon in the market with the map view service of the app. The app’s smart tour guide service also provides a push notification service when you travel into the Beacon radius of your chosen store before traveling. After the trip, the app provides the user to purchase a product from the same store that he or she purchased while traveling.
