Digitizing indoor and underground cultural heritage sites with robots


In this paper we describe our novel approach for acquiring and managing digital models of archaeological sites, and how we plan to showcase it during the Digital Heritage Expo 2015. In particular, we will demonstrate three technologies: our robotic system for digitization of archaeological sites (DigiRo), our cloud-based archaeological information system (ARIS), and our immersive virtual reality app for virtually visiting the digitized sites (VR Tours).
