Project name Leveraging touristic potential of European cultural heritage through high tech - HERITAGE 4.0
Objective Objective 3.2
Priority Natural and cultural resources
Aim The aim of the project is to develop a framework of the most advanced research and presentation technologies, to enable the exploration and presentation of EU archaeological heritage in the most immediate and user friendly way. The development of a suite of tools and techniques that will collect data from many non-invasive (LIDAR, GMR, GPR, 3D scanning, laser scanning and similar) and invasive research techniques, use of computer aided simulation and analysis and computer assisted virtual reality and augmented reality presentation and interpretation will shorten the time between on-the-field research, analysis and presentation of cultural heritage from many years to few months. Contextualization and interpretation will become part of the future touristic product development, in a way to make heritage from static object presentation to dynamic (hi)story telling.
Results The planned results of the project are:
- a suite of tools and techniques to collect data from many sources, aided with digital technology;
- an open-source digital platform for data analysis and presentation;
- an user application for interactive presentation of the heritage contents;
- few pilot areas where the above-mentioned suite is applied, perfected and verified;
- an open-source repository for all know-how that will be collected, based on open data;
- presentations and publications about the results.
Cost 2600000
Duration 3 years
Partners involved Zavod Krasen Kras
Partners requested Museums, academia, archaeological parks, hi-tech companies (LIDAR and Ground Penetrating Radar imaging and interpretation, 3D scanning, Augmented Reality, 3D animation)
Innovation The use of cutting edge technology will shorten the time from discovery to (touristic) presentation for a magnitude of ten (time will be ten times less than currently). This will enable a quicker return of the research costs, creating a snowball effect and enabling new heritage content to drive new tourism products.
