In this paper a combination of traditional GIS along with multimedia, remotely sensed and GPS derived data is realised. Such a combination results in a multimedia GIS for accurate and valuable information concerning geotourism. A special feature of the multimedia GIS that was developed is that it contains information about the environmental challenges and sustainable development issues for geosites. This paper focuses on the incorporation of this multimedia GIS has been incorporated in a recommendation system for geotourism. The proposed recommendation system has the ability to personalise its interaction to each individual user.
