La Realidad Virtual aplicada a la explotación sostenible del Patrimonio Arqueológico. Un caso éxito: la Cueva de Santimamiñe.

Sergio Barrera Mayo, Unai Baeza Santamaría


Archaeological complex are important heritage elements that require special care because of its fragility and because of the need of spreading its richness to the society along the time. The archaeological heritage used as education, scientific, cultural, economical resource, sometimes does not combine with the duty of its protection and conservation because the unwise exploitation of archaeological sites can generate irreversible damage. Combining the appropriate technologies, a virtual reconstruction can be developed in a high quality level, allowing the massive tourism exploitation in a respectful way. This technology enables the communication and spread to future generations in the best conditions, adding an innovative value.
