Project Information

Project Description

PROMOTION was a development project and part of the SPA program. PROMOTION aimed at designing and implementing a prototype multimedia tourist information system able to handle in a friendly way multimedia data about Crete's sites and the tourist industry of the island. PROMOTION allows users to concentrate on specific areas that have something matching their interests (e.g. hiking, swimming, museums, archaeological sites, villages). The user is informed in detail about everything that concerns these areas. Information presentation combines audio, images, video and text.
