- Despite being located on the border area, Merauke has a very important architectural historical heritage. However, if its current existence is not well-preserved, it will lead to extinction. In fact, the historic building provides an image or identity and increases the tourism value of a city. The Old City of Merauke can be developed for tourism, similar to that in Old City of Semarang or Old City of Jakarta. Not only that, the development of the Old City area will be the first uniqueness in Papua. However, the problem experienced by the Merauke government is the absence of a Geographic Information System (GIS) that can provide information to the people of Merauke to determining the tourism potential location of the historic buildings in Merauke. GIS is also useful for the development of old building conservation research, because it serves as an initial step in conservation, the inventory phase of conservation buildings. This research is inductive exploratory research using descriptive-analytic survey method and evaluative methods.
