Augmented Reality System for the musealization of archaeological sites

Javier Esclapés, Daniel Tejerina Antón, Joaquim Bolufer, Marco Aurelio Esquembre

Abstract

In this paper we are presenting a multi-marker and semi-immersive system for augmented reality to visualize and interact with archaeological sites, specifically those located in inaccessible or complex environments, such as caves or underwater locations. The use of this system in museum exhibitions helps visitors to come closer to archaeological heritage. As an example for the implementation of this system, an archaeological site has been used. It is the “Cova del Barranc del Migdia”, located in the “Sierra del Montgó”, Xàbia (Spain). The product obtained has been exhibited in various museums nationwide.
