Web-based and Mobile Provisioning of Virtual 3D Reconstructions

Klimke, Jan; Hagedorn, Benjamin; Trapp, Matthias; Döllner, Jürgen in Tagungsband der 12. Konferenz Kultur und Informatik: Reality and Virtuality Franken-Wendelstorf, R.; Lindinger, E.; Sieck, J. ( Eds. ), page 17--28 . Werner Hülsbusch Verlag , 2014 .

Communication of cultural heritage by means of digital information systems has been gaining more and more importance over recent years. Interactive virtual 3D applications enable users to explore 3D virtual reconstructions in real-time, to directly interact with the contained digital cultural heritage artifacts, and to obtain insights into this data. Nevertheless, these artifacts are usually very detailed and complex 3D models that are hard to handle for end-user systems. This paper presents the concept and a prototypical implementation of an image-based, web-based approach for the communication of digital cultural heritage and its provisioning for the Web and mobile devices by the example of the project Colonia3D – a high-detail, virtual reconstruction and high-detail 3D city model of Roman Cologne. Through this web-based and mobile provisioning, complex digital reconstructions can be used, e.g., on-site to match local findings and reconstructions.
