VIRTUAL REALITY FOR LOST ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE VISUALIZATION UTILIZING LIMITED DATA
Keywords: VR, Lost Heritage, Data Visualization
Abstract. The process of building digital models of architectural heritage has become increasingly complex and accordingly this enables the potential of utilizing digital techniques as a tool in the context of research. Depending on the objective of the research, there are various tools and outcomes. Ranging from information management projects by using Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technologies, to providing Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) by using smart technologies for visualization of architectural heritage, there is an increasing demand because of their fast developing technological abilities. Additionally, the digitization processes also becoming less dependent to the information coming from the building and as a result the subject of such research includes buildings that have disappeared without various archival data or other types of historical information.This paper investigates the different visualization techniques and tools for lost architectural heritage examples in post-conflict societies with limited available data, focusing on the VR mobile applications and their implementations.
