/ VRML prototype / cd-rom / web
An interactive, highly portable,
web-based educational product which explores sites of
significant cultural importance in Peru and Bolivia
which flourished in Pre-Columbian times. Currently the
majority of these sites are in bad condition, or they
are located in such remote areas that are not tourist-,
In the current version, only Chavin
de Huantar in Peru has been reconstructed with very
rough data. The prototype utilizes VRML and a web-based
interface and has been optimized for very slow computers
and lower-end technology to accomodate low-budget classrooms.
The user navigates the arhaeological site much like
a video game and at the same time has access to site
information and bibliography.
