Cultural & Tourist Reserve of Municipality of Lamia

Implementation period: 2013
Contracting authority:Municipality of Lamia
Τοοls: Virtual & augmented reality, multimedia, web

The project is attempting an innovative approach to the promotion of the cultural and tourist reserve of the Municipality of Lamia. The existing infrastructure of the Centre of Historical Information of Thermopylae is being upgraded and its role as a precursor to the promotion of the Culture of the Municipality of Lamia is strengthened. State-of-the-art tools and technologies are utilized, offering the visitor multilingual virtual tours of 3D digital images of Thermopylae and personalized outdoor tours using smart mobile devices.

This is achieved through the creation of three-dimensional models of selected sites in the area with emphasis on the historical Thermopylae-Alamana-Gorgopotamos triangle, which have been digitized and geo-referenced in 3D in the environment. The user can thus virtually browse around selected monuments-buildings as well as learn about their history and architecture, as well as how to visit them.
