AbstractThis paper looks at the opportunities and challenges created by new 3D technologies introduced recently in the context of virtual reconstruction of cultural heritage sites for preservation and entertainment. A number of projects carried out by the authors in the last four years support the conclusions made in this paper. The projects presented include a 6th century bronze sculpture, metopes/architectural elements of a Greek temple, and, a Byzantine Crypt. Results on CDROM, DVD, 3D theatres, holograms and, video animations have been prepared for these projects. The 3D modeling work that was accomplished in preparing these rich-media products is based mainly upon high-quality photo-realistic texture mapping onto high-resolution 3D models generated from range images. This procedure is enhanced with the integration of both photogrammetric and CAD modeling techniques.
