This paper presents a system designed to utilize innovative spatial interconnection technologies for sites and events of environmental, cultural and tourist interests. The system will discover and consolidate semantic information from multiple sources, providing the end-user the ability to organize and implement integrated and enhanced tours. The system, called e-xnilatis, will extend existing innovative techniques, including: semi-automated searching and ex traction of real-time knowledge from online resources, automated discovery of points of interest as well as events, semantic integration, classification and hierarchy of information from various sources, spatial representation of content, personalized user experience and Augmented Reality (AR) for the interconnection of the digital with the natural environment. A complex online platform and applications for smart devices will be developed so that the user manages and receives the optimum route information along with AR experience when applicable. The platform will be an open architecture tool that, with the appropriate time-space constraints, will be able to create adaptive content. A typical example of this is the Egnatia motorway, where the e-xnilatis platform will be evaluated
