LBI ArchPro at the European Forum Alpbach 2016

From 25-27 August 2016 the LBI ArchPro hosted an exhibition stand at the EFA Technology Symposium. At the TEC-Xperience area the LBI ArchPro demonstrated how high-tech tools in archaeology are transforming our view of history. To present our trendsetting research to a large audience Georg Zotti - LBI-expert in GIS-based landscape analysis, 3D-data processing and virtual reconstructions and the mastermind behind many interactive models for our LBI science exhibitions - developed a mobile, tangible and interactive 3D landscape model of the Viking Age site Birka. Another highlight among visitors was a virtual walk through the Stonehenge landscape and Bronze Age Akrotiri which was brought back to life with the new HTC VIVE Virtual-Reality-headset (3D-reconstructions and –animations by 7reasons).

The European Forum Alpbach (EFA) is an interdisciplinary platform for science, politics, business and culture. The EFA takes place in Alpbach (Tyrol, Austria) every year attracting around 4000 participants from all over the world.
