Abstract
This paper presents a system that supports the exploration of digital representations of large-scale museum ar-
tifacts in through non-instrumented, location-based interaction. The system employs a state-of-the-art computer
vision system, which localizes and tracks multiple visitors. The artifact is presented in a wall-sized projection
screen and it is visually annotated with text and images according to the location as well as walkthrough trajecto-
ries of the tracked visitors. The system is evaluated in terms of computational performance, localization accuracy,
tracking robustness and usability.
