UNESCO Chair of Cultural Heritage and Visualisation

We explore how augmented and mixed and virtual reality can reveal new dimensions of history for heritage, tourism and educational purposes.

AIMS:

  • Create a network to use and advise on 3D models of World Heritage Sites and show how 3D models can be employed in teaching and research.
  • Build capacity through community workshops, learning materials, distributing the teaching resources digitally at no cost the end user, train research students, postdocs, research fellows.
  • Recommend long-term archive guidelines, linking 3D models to scholarly publications, scholarly resources and infrastructures.
  • Disseminate the results of research activities at conferences and workshops, via online papers, applications and learning materials.
  • Cooperate closely with UNESCO on relevant activities.
