    In recent years, the tourism industry is significantly growing on the internet. On the internet, tourists are interested in ratings and comments about tourist spots, which they want to visit and which were already rated and commented upon by other tourists. There are lots of online sources, which provide such ratings, therefore the overview of these ratings is problematic, since we have limited access to each individual source. In order to solve this problem within the thesis, we developed a prototype of a system, which enables a fast overview of ratings of all tourist spots in one place. To further simplify the overview, we categorized the tourist spots. The system is divided into two parts. The first part is a responsive web application for the presentation of data about tourist spots and sites. The second part is a control panel, through which we manage all the data, which are being shown in the main application. The main application also features a search engine to find locations and sites and a display of tourist spots on a map. In addition it offers a more detailed overview of changes of ratings over time. We tested the application on tourist spots from five larger Slovenian towns. Considering that in 25 % of cases the ratings from individual sources differed by more than one, such overview of ratings proved to be useful and meaningful.
