Designing a virtual museum within a museum
Proceedings of the VAST2001 Symposium, November 2001, Athens, Greece.
A virtual environment system installed within a real museum can offer a number of advantages, which are discussed in this paper: overcoming the lack of exhibition space, responding to the need for interaction with certain exhibits, affording easy transfer of exhibitions to remote sites. This paper also presents an approach towards designing and developing a virtual reality museum comprising ten different museums. The processes of digitisation, architectural design and exhibit presentation are outlined and points of particular importance are explained. Exhibits from real world museums have been digitised and integrated in this VE.
