Augmented Reality Interactive Exhibits in Cartographic Heritage:
An implemented case-study open to the general public
Keywords: interactive museum exhibits, augmented reality, computer vision, location aware systems.
Summary: This paper presents the application of the PaperView system in the domain of
cartographic heritage. PaperView is a multi-user augmented-reality system for supple-
menting physical surfaces with digital information, through the use of pieces of plain pa-
per that act as personal, location-aware, interactive screens. By applying the proposed me-
thod of reality augmentation in the cartographic heritage domain, the system provides the
capability of retrieving multimedia information about areas of interest, overlaying infor-
mation on a 2D or 3D (i.e., scale model) map, as well as comparing different versions of a
single map. The technologies employed are presented, along with the interactive behavior
of the system, which was instantiated and tested in three setups: (i) a map of Macedonia,
Greece, including ancient Greek cities with archeological interest; (ii) a glass case con-
taining a scale model and (iii) a part of Rigas Velestinlis Charta. The first two systems
are currently installed and available to the general public at the Archaeological Museum
