Virtual Lady Ada, an interactive museum exhibition

Abstract This case study will describe the method on how to create, animate and interact with virtual humans in the context of cultural heritage. Our contribution to these several projects was to show the state of the art of virtual humans and in-teractive applications. We will focus on the interaction loop between the detection of visitors and the reacted expression of the avatar, the dynamic and the integra-tion of metadata such as pictures, storytelling, information that enriched the user experience through an exhibition presented at the biggest museum of computer science in the world: Lady Ada.

“Adventure Soil Life” – A virtual journey through an unknown world

Abstract Few people are aware that there are more organisms living within a cube metre of soil than man on earth. With the virtual reality (VR) experience “Adventure soil life”, the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History Görlitz brings visitors closer to the biodiversity underneath their feet; this approach reflects the research focus of the museum: soil organisms. Shrunk to the size of a woodlouse, they explore the hidden world and get an almost realistic impression of the habitats and their inhabitants. The VR experience has been created as part of the Senckenberg activities within the pilot project “museum4punkt0 –...

The 4D-CH Calw Project

Abstract The 4D -Cultural Heritage Project takes advance of Imagery from the wild (Internet) and existing repositories to reconstruct 3D Models of Monuments, Places and Landscapes. This method  however can not always reproduce a complete dataset of an object since the obliged views are depending on the prominent positions of the recording. We would like to present two different approaches to a work-flow which overcomes this issue through a semi – automated reconstruction  as well as the use of simulation with a grammar based modelling.

The Roman Maastricht VR Project

Abstract In contrast to excavated and preserved Cultural Heritage Sites in the open Landscape, City -Archaeology faces the difficulty to mediate to the public about the archaeological remains due to the absence of cohesive information given by the destructive nature of urban settlement activity causing the remains to stay indiscernible. Our focus in this paper is to explain the entire production process from data acquisition, Capturing and Digitization of existing remains, pre and post -processing of captured datasets, advanced 3D modelling techniques as well as the concept of storytelling to the resulting Digital Cultural Heritage Application and its outreach....
