Virtual Heritage Imagery

Institute for Digital Theology hsd created a virtual tour of the Upper Church of the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi in San Francisco.
The tour is based on architectural aspects of the building and images taken prior to the disastrous 1997 earthquake that caused extensive damage to the structure. The result is a stunning electronic tour of the basilica before some of its artwork was irreparably damaged.

Dr. Glenn Gunhouse, of the Georgia State University, School of Art and Design is involved in adapting new technologies to the needs of teachers and researchers in the field of Art History. See some of his work among the Pelican Crossing's Virtual Heritage images. (Sample below)

The screenshots of my Egyptian tomb on the Pelican Crossing site were made by the designer of Blink 3D. He modified the settings of the environment so that the images on the walls end up scrambled (as can be seen in the screenshot above). For a better idea of what such environments look like, please go to
