Heritage Visualisation on iPhone
Mawson’s Huts Interactive Guide on iPhone
An experimental iPhone app for heritage visualisation. Prototype implementation in conjunction with Paul Bourke. It consists of a 3D model of Mawson’s Hut (Antarctica) populated with 6 high resolution full spherical panoramic images from key positions on the exterior and interior of the hut.
A simple two-digit navigation system is demonstrated for interactive realtime walkthrough of Mawson’s Huts, Antarctica, using the Unity game engine.
Users can explore the interior and exterior of Mawson’s Huts and a variety of fully-spherical high-resolution photographic panoramas documenting the site. An audio soundtrack accompanies the visualisation as it is explored.
This demo application was available through the Apple iTunes store – but is currently withdrawn for further development.
