ARCHAEO VIZ - A 3D Explorative Learning Environment of Reconstructed Archaeological Sites and Cultural Artefacts

Ioannis Paliokas, Vlad Buda, Iancu Adrian Robert

Abstract

In this paper, we present an educationally effective software system based on modelling for cultural heritage objects and landscapes of archaeological sites. The low-cost ‘Archaeo Viz’ can be easily applied as an extension to pre-existing museum data management systems. Its main contribution is to strengthen the visualized experience of visitors, support educational activities and enhance the communication between archaeologists, researchers, museum curators and the public. It is a concrete, open and evolving model designed to support case studies based on archaeological complex sites in a game like environment.
