Abstract

"3D Digitized Romanesque Ermita in Virtual Reality" is a digital exploration of the historical, architectural, and cultural significance of a medieval Romanesque church in Valladolid, Spain. In this project, I recreate Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Anunciada, a reconstructed Catholic monastery. A digital replica of the church, produced by photogrammetry in the summer of 2014, has been created in a virtual environment and is experienced through immersive technologies. The use of a head-mounted display is a wearable device in which users view environments three dimensionally, while a Qualisys motion tracking system allows users to physically walk through the virtual world. Additionally, this project explores the potential for the use of virtual reality as a learning tool in classroom and museum settings.
