The Galápagos Islands are the tourism hub in Ecuador. The islands greatly benefit economically from the tourism industry, but tourism also affects the conservation of the islands and the local businesses. Locals are suffering due to the impact of tourism. Tourists from around the world go to the archipelago seeking the beauty of the islands. People come on cruise ships to ports, but many aren’t aware of the local businesses and etiquette on the islands, preferring to stay on the ship or near the ports. GalápaGo! is the solution for locals and tourists on the Galapagos Islands. The goal of GalápaGo! is to show tourists local businesses, and to inform them about island etiquette. This document outlines the specific technological requirements of GalápaGo! within the Requirement, Use Cases, Activity Diagrams, Conceptual Models, Technologies Used, and the Architecture Diagram chapters. Additionally, the project management scope is outlined through the Design Rationale, Testing, Risk Analysis, and Timeline chapters.
