In addition to adopting the concept of territoriality, tourism planning in West Bandung Regency also applies an approach based on groupings of resources owned. In order to accelerate tourism development in the South West Bandung Regency area, this study seeks to convey the results of a study on mapping the potential for tourist attractions. An analytical tool in the form of a Point Rating System (PRS) is used to assess various aspects of tourism in these areas. Based on the analysis results, three areas of 3 different development priorities are revitalization of tourism destinations, development of tourism destinations, and pioneering tourism destinations. In conclusion, policy and regulatory aspects are very important in constructing the integrated tourism development of the Southern West Bandung Regency. Some aspects that need to be considered in development in the South West Bandung Regency include accessibility, connectivity, and infrastructure provision.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Dicky Arsyul Salam Copyright (c) 2022 Dicky Arsyul Salam 2022-08-04 2022-08-04 2 2 61 70 10.35313/jtospolban.v2i2.35 A Systematic Literature Review of Tour Guide Performance <p>The performance of tour guides has come to the attention of many researchers, as part of the disclosure of the phenomenon of prestigious professions in the tourism industry.

With the development of geospatial technology, tourists' distribution and travel patterns can be visualized by collecting data on tourist visits to tourist attractions and their routes. With the YWDM method, this web-gis was developed using the YWDM methodology with several phases according to the methods used. This application uses an open-source programming language, namely Javascript, and uses JSON as an upstream geodatabase. The results show that Web-GIS visualization of the distribution and travel patterns can make it easier to monitor the density of a tourist attraction. It is well developed in providing more accurate information on the distribution and density of tourist attractions. With the YWDM methodology, visualization can be done like the software development stage and equipped with steps in need for spatial data management.</p> Cholid Fauzi Syifaa Novianti Chandra Budhi Septyandi Copyright (c) 2022 Cholid Fauzi, Syifaa Novianti, Chandra Septyandi 2022-08-04 2022-08-04 2 2 79 87 10.35313/jtospolban.v2i2.44 How to Sustain Visitors’ Interest during The Crisis: The Case Study of Pangandaran Beach <p>Pangandaran, one of Indonesia's well-known tourist destinations, has never been vacant when allowed to visit, even during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Local employment becomes one form of recruitment that tourist attractions often carry out. However, increasing local participation in tourism often creates friction between tourist attractions and residents. This research aims to explore local participation in The Lodge Maribaya, one of the popular tourist attractions in Bandung West Java, by investigating factors influencing the community's support for local employment in the area. Data was collected using a structured questionnaire from 59 employees who are locals in the area. The confirmatory factor analysis was utilized to test the construct validity and reliability of the model. At the same time, Partial Least Squares (PLS) modeling was employed to assess the relationship among the variables.<strong><span data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;</span></strong><span data-preserver-spaces="true">This study has found that community attachment and perceived benefits play an important role in the community's support in The Lodge Maribaya in terms of their participation in local employment.
