As part of the iGrid Research Demonstration at INET 2000, we created two Virtual Cultural Heritage environments - “Virtual Harlem” and “Shared Miletus”. The purpose of these applications was to explore possibilities in using the combination of high-speed international networks and virtual reality (VR) displays for cultural heritage education. Our ultimate goal is to enable the construction of tele-immersive museums and classes.
In this paper we present an overview of the infrastructure used for these applications, and some details of their construction.
