Natural interaction for cultural heritage: the archaeological site of Shawbak
One of the most interesting issues in the field of cultural heritage is the adoption of multimedia systems for the visualization and organization of information. In this paper we present a natural interaction based system designed to represent multimedia contents related to the archaeological site of Shawbak, situated in the Petra region of Jordan. Contents are composed of texts, images and videos showing and explaining the archeological site areas and the history of the castle. This system was installed at the Limonaia di Palazzo Pitti (Italy) for the archeological exhibition called "From Petra to Shawbak". Categories and Subject Descriptors D.2.10 [Design]: Methodologies and Representation D.2.11 [Software Architecture]: Data abstraction and Domainspecific architecture. General Terms Design, Experimentation, Human Factors. Keywords Archaeology, Shawbak, Multi-touch, Tabletop, FTIR.
