Introduction



how to preserve cultural heritage?
Bosnia and Herzgovina – heritage destroyed
by age and the war
computer graphics should help the
archaeologists and historians using advanced
technologies
Stećak – Reconstruction and
sun simulation


stećak – medieval gravestone
stećak from Donje Zgošće – 14th century
Stećak – Digitalization



one corner damaged
3D model created by laser scanning
Minolta 910 laser scanner – laser triangulation
Stećak – Reconstruction

damaged corner reconstructed in Maya
Stećak – Sun simulation



orientation of stećaks was important for heretic
Christians
stećaks are moved from their original locations
and oriented in a wrong way
we created sun simulation to compare
orientations towards the sun

Conclusion




virtual heritage research in Bosnia and
Herzegovina has just started
combination of laser scanning and 3D
modeling enabled us to create a collection of
virtual models
presentation through interactive CD-s and web
applications expanded with virtual and real
avatars telling stories from BH tradition
Future work




stronger collaboration with archaeologists and
historians
expanding virtual heritage collection
virtual museum collections
application of digital storytelling techniques in
virtual environments
