Augmented Reality for the Enhancement of Apulian Archaeological Areas

We present an application of the Augmented Reality technology, for the enhancement of some Apulian archaeological areas, regarding the indigenous population of the Apulia region.

The aim is to improvevisitors’ knowledge about this population, in order to better understand the archaeological areas of the Museo Diffuso “Castello di Alceste”, in San Vito deiNormanni (BR), and the site of Fondo Giuliano, in Vaste (LE). A mobile application (for Android and iOS devices) has been developed for non- specialized audience; by focusing on a planimetric map of the archaeological areas, 3D models are superimposed on, and combined with other kinds of contents (texts, images, video, audio), in order to allow the visitors to fully understanding the history and all of the features of the ancient sites.
