We present VITA (visual interaction tool for archaeology), an experimental collaborative mixed reality system for offsite visualization of an archaeological dig. [...] Key Method Users can combine speech, touch, and 3D hand gestures to interact multimodally with the environment. Preliminary user tests were conducted with archaeology researchers and students, and their feedback is presented here.Expand
VITA: visual interaction tool for archaeology (demo)
VITA (Visual Interaction Tool for Archaeology) is an experimental collaborative mixed reality system for offsite visualization of an archaeological dig. Our demonstration of VITA allows multipleExpand
Augmented reality based user interfaces to assist fieldwork on excavation sites

Real-world Data for Virtual Reality Experiences: Interpreting Excavations
TLDR
This work explores how real-world, as well as multiresource data, can be used for Virtual Reality (VR) experiences, and presents the development and results of a 360-degree head-mounted display experience of a dinosaur dig at the Eric the RedWest at Cape Otway in Victoria, Australia. Expand
ArtifactVis2: Managing real-time archaeological data in immersive 3D environments
TLDR
ArtifactVis2 provides a GIS based immersive environment that taps directly into archaeological datasets to investigate cultural and historical issues of ancient societies and cultural heritage in ways not possible before. Expand

Virtual and augmented reality for cultural computing and heritage: a case study of virtual exploration of underwater archaeological sites (preprint)
TLDR
The base idea behind using VR and AR techniques is to offer archaeologists and general public new insights on the reconstructed archaeological sites allowing archaeologists to study directly from within the virtual site and allowing the general public to immersively explore a realistic reconstruction of the sites.
