This study utilizes collected data of about 60 tourist sites in Jordan to develop management plans and to direct and guide future tourist developmental projects. A geographic information system (GIS) was used to construct an inductive model that finds suitable areas for the initiation of tourist developmental projects. Our results pointed to four suitable areas where developmental projects should be directed: Madaba, Karak, Aqaba, and Wadi Mousa. The absence of modern information technologies, the presence of traditional management, and the centralized administration within the tourism sector in Jordan have slowed the prosperity of tourism.
