Before closed, Dolly is the largest localization area in Southeast Asia, located in Surabaya, East Java. After closing in 2014, to change Dolly into a region that has a positive image, the government of Surabaya City plans to develop Dolly becomes an Urban Ecotourism area. To support the program, various training activities have been conducted. In addition to, Dolly development is also encouraging the development of supporting facilities such as an information system that can describe the new Dolly. Knowing this issue, it is necessary to conduct a social toponymy survey that can support the availability of geospatial information. The method used in this research is field surveying and interview based on toponymy. The concept of standardization is verified the elements that have been standardized, propose that not have been standardized, and identify the potential of Dolly. The results of toponymy survey were analyzed using four geographic approaches (onomastics, spatial, ecological, and geographic) to determine the description of the area, naming criteria, and existing tourism potential. In addition to these four approaches, to describe how potential development of Urban Ecotourism in Dolly, also used qualitative-descriptive analysis techniques. The results of this research, in addition to information about history and gazetteer, also presented information about Urban Ecotourism in Dolly. From the identification, it is known that there are some villages in Dolly that have been developed into tourist areas with various characteristics, such as: "Kampung Orumi" which is famous with seaweed drink, "Kampung Samijali" with Samiler crackers, "Kampung Batik" with the design of Jarak and Semanggi Leaves Typical of Surabaya, and "Kampung Telur Asin" with various food made from salted eggs. And in the end, to present information about Dolly, in this research will also be built WebGIS of Dolly Ecotourism.
