Virtual Southwest

Archaeology Southwest created the Virtual Southwest initiative to explore how emerging technologies in digital media could be utilized to share the results of archaeological research with an interested public. Technologies such as interactive exhibits, 3D animation, and virtual reality were used to share what we have learned about a wide variety of places of the past.

Central to the development of Virtual Southwest was the development of a Chronological Virtual Reality system, which used the Unity 3D engine to streamline the development of interactive content for a wide variety of archaeology-based exhibits and applications.
