Step study conducted starting from data collection, analysis of functional requirements, system design, implementation, and testing of WCF applications. WCF application consists of several services, namely download service information lists attractions, arts and cultural information, culinary information, lodging information, and download the tourism image data from the server. Based on the test results of the service, it can be concluded that the service to function properly and is able to distribute information to the client.
