A Generative Approach to Virtual Museums

Daniel Sacher, Daniel Biella, Wolfram Luther

Abstract

In this paper we introduce an automated approach for generating virtual museum exhibitions based on metadata. We will give an insight into the incorporation progress of X3Dom, as an additional export format supported by the 3D content generation framework, Replicave. The feasibility of these concepts will be tested by providing new application examples within the scope of our ongoing cooperation with the Salomon Ludwig Steinheim Institute.
