The Resource Description Framework (RDF) language is a widely used tool for information representation among several agent-based frameworks and applications. In this paper, one of these applications is introduced: a tourism application that allows the user to find touristic hotspots and venues matching specific criteria, an application that is used via an interface designed specially for the Apple iPhoneTM. Besides, this application uses a modern and efficient agent platform with RDF support to power the whole architecture.
