Abstract

This paper presents user interaction modules of a recent digital cultural heritage conservation and exploration project concerning two important museums: Istanbul Archeology Museum and the Museum of Dolmabahçe Palace Collections in Istanbul. The project aims at enriching the visitor experience through modern digital technologies. Main modules include 3D scanning of the artifacts, information screen and mobile interaction with Augmented Reality.3D scanning task includes capturing the accurate 3D geometry of the target artifacts. Information screen enables users to browse the museum catalogue with multimedia content which results in easier and enjoyable learning while keeping a stronger visitor engagement. Mobile module relies on visual computing applied to camera images of a mobile device to locate the artifacts in the scene and lay artificial tags/markers on the screen. The result is a more natural and flexible method to interact with historical artifacts.
