Abstract


Chan Chan, an archaeological site located at Trujillo, Peru, is a huge historical settlement very large and difficult to visit and some well-conserved architecture, like Huaca Arco Iris, is very far from the core centre of the site. Furthermore many other heavy factors, as illegal excavations, marine salt transported by the wind and the sometime devastating phenomenon of the Niño, are the reasons of the lost of many decorative elements, which are covered due to conservation issues. To overcome the aforesaid problems, we designed, developed and realized the museum exhibition called “Esquina Multimedia”, providing the tourists with interactive and enjoyable applications. An Augmented Reality application has been developed in order to discover ancient artefacts that are invisible because covered by the earth (or by protection structures). A web-browser has been specifically designed to show bas-relieves, with HD visualization and with anaglyph stereoscopic view. Herewith, a wall-mounted panel representing a metric 3D reconstruction by an accurate survey of the building helps the user to find the artefact position.
