Presenting Past and Present of an Archaeological Site in the Virtual Showcase

By Florian Ledermann and Dieter Schmalstieg


In this paper, we present our effort to use augmented reality technology to present an archaeological site inside the “Virtual Showcase”. A real scale model of the ruin of the roman “Heidentor” is complemented with virtual overlays to provide the visitor with additional information about the exhibit and interact with it in various ways. Using an authoring framework developed by us, it is possible to create complex interactive presentations that allow the visitor to explore different paths of a story about the history of the building.
