Abstract


The 3D visualization of historical-artistic heritage in the province of Caceres is an essential tool for touristic promotion. To this end, a methodology is offered based on the application of panoramic spherical photography and terrestrial laser scanner (TLS). The general aim is the creation of geometric representations of sites of cultural interest by the visualization of spherical scenarios and the application of 3D modelling techniques. Particular aims include the geometric cataloguing and acquisition of this artistic heritage and the development of an interactive tool for tourists. A hypermedia atlas is created in which 3D spherical scenarios is visualized displaying videos obtained from the point of clouds and ASCII format downloadable 3D models are made freely available. Other benefits of this project are gains in the knowledge and assessment of the cultural heritage in Caceres.
