As technology evolves so does the world. Newer software and hardware allow humans to enrich their environments. We can ensure that technology will be embedded into our daily lives. At Virtual Space we see that virtual technology can assist museums and anthropology to enhance our understandings of the human past.
Understandings of the Past
Museums are a gateway to a communities’ past. Each museum holds records of their local past. Some museums hold a larger history on a special topic to our human experience. A museum should be an experience to knowledge, an opportunity to explore the treasures of the past supported by the latest technologies.
Spatial data is the DNA to our world. It is essential for all investigations to have the best data available to make the most accurate research.GIS and Spatial data will allow real-time decisions and georeferencing to catalog the exact GPS coordinates of artifacts,landmarks, or areas of study to reference the location and place in time of features.
3D is a powerful tool that can transform our understanding of the past. This tool allows users to create accurate environments based on academic research from current or past studies. Photogrammetry scanning, Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR) environments are part of our 3D arsenal which allows us to be transported to any site. These applications become interactive learning environments enhancing our understanding of the area of focus without physically being at the site hundreds or thousands of miles away at the lab or office..
