Employing augmented reality for reviving heritage sites: an AR vision for Qasr al-Abd in Jordan
AbstractProfessionals in the heritage sector are currently focusing on using new, innovative methods to attract and engage visitors in heritage sites. One of their main strategies in achieving this goal is employing the latest technological applications that allow the visitor’s interaction with the cultural heritage site and content. Augmented reality is one of these latest technological trends utilized in heritage sites to enhance the visitors’ experience. This paper shed light on the role of augmented reality in bringing ruined cultural heritage sites and its history back to life. It specifically, proposes applying augmented reality on Qasr al-Abd or the Palace of the Slave in Jordan to revive its significance. It emphasizes the reasons and advantages of applying AR on Qasr al-Abd and provides a vision for how some AR systems can be utilized for demonstrating its original look and revealing its cultural and archeological uniqueness and beauty.
