Abstract. Indonesia is one of the countries that has enormous tourism potential where this sector has contributed a total of 229.5 trillion for the country's foreign exchange. However, in the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses in the tourism sector have to stop temporarily and result in economic pressure which directly impacts the acceleration of the economic recession in Indonesia. One of the solutions to reduce the impact of economic pressure while reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the tourism sector is the application of health protocols that are directly applied in tourist attractions. To do this a variety of careful preparations are needed. In this case, geospatial information technology can help the community, government, and tourism business managers in implementing health protocols in tourist attractions. Seeing the urgency of implementing health protocols in the tourism sector, we developed the ULIN-D product as a WebGIS platform that is able to visualize, plan, and evaluate the condition of health protocol facilities in various tourist locations. Some of ULIN-D's strategic functions are its ability to provide recommended visitor capacity, display the number of visitors in real-time, and display the number of hand-washing places at tourist attractions based on the profile characteristics of each tourist location. The method used in this research is the combination of various kinds of spatial data and non-spatial data in a dynamic and integrated platform. Tourism location profile information is analyzed in detail to obtain accurate scenario results in establishing a standard health protocol. ULIN-D is expected to be a solution and a reference for how geospatial technology can help improve the quality of policies in the tourism sector for the continuation of the new habits adaption.
