TourML was created to serve as a simple and portable representation for tour content. Having a common language for this content will enable content management systems, kiosks, and mobile applications to speak a common language. Additionally, users of TourML will be better positioned to share and sustain their content no matter how the technology that we use to deliver these tours changes.
TourML is distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License. As TourML is an open specification meant to support any kind of tour content, this license was selected to help ensure that variants of the TourML specification do not detract from the original goal, having an agreed upon specification for the community. It is our hope that any limitations found in TourML can be addressed in future versions of the specification. This license does not restrict the usage of TourML in commercial products.
