Abstract This paper describes the Virtual Ganjali Khan Project, an ongoing research initiative that is using 3D scanning and immersive virtual reality (VR) technologies to document a large historical landmark in the desert city of Kerman, Iran, the Ganjali Khan Complex. It describes the intellectual merits of these emerging technologies for preserving and providing new forms of access to cultural heritage sites, outlines the procedures of data collection and 3D processing, and describes the… 

Immersive Inscribed Spaces – Bringing Virtuality to Written Artefacts for Humanities

The scope of the research project is outlined, the current implementations of immersive applications based on two scenarios involving inscribed spaces are presented, and high ratings in the sense of presence in the virtual environments indicate that immersive spatial context could add new perspectives for understanding WA.

Presentation Layer in a Virtual Museum for Cultural Heritage Artefacts

This paper aims to show the presentation layer of a virtual museum for cultural heritage artefacts. The three-dimensional representation and the main components of a 3D environment of the virtual

Virtual Reality Application of the Fortress Al Zubarah in Qatar Including Performance Analysis of Real-Time Visualisation

CAD models offer a better performance for real-time VR visualisation than meshed models due to the significant reduced data volume, and developers of VR applications should find a compromise between the amount of data and the available computer hardware.
