title Worth a Thousand Words? The Usefulness of Immersive Virtual Reality for Learning in Cultural Heritage Settings
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 7 - no. 1, 157-176
summary The goal of this paper is to investigate whether immersive virtual reality is suitable for learning about archaeology and the past in cultural heritage settings. To that end it presents the conclusions related to learning from the visitors' survey undertaken in 2007 by the Museology Laboratory of the University of the Aegean at the Hellenic Cosmos (the exhibition centre of the Foundation of the Hellenic World) in Athens, and contrasts these with other similar studies. This project was aimed at comparing the learning outcomes, perception and use by audiences of two different virtual reality systems and a related exhibition. It included qualitative and quantitative analysis of the data gathered through in situ observations, interviews with museum educators and face-to-face questionnaires with visitors. The results confirmed that, as previous studies have shown, virtual reality systems allow a different kind of learning, but also questioned the common believe about their advantage for children in comparison with other interpretation methods.

title CityZoom

summary In the last twenty years, computer tools have progressively enabled the modeling of buildings and cities in lesser time and cost, along with an increase in the results quality. A city modeled according to planning regulations usually present a correlation between plots and buildings dimensions. The representation of such correlation for a large number of plots requires repetitive work, thus suggesting the use of a computational tool to perform the task. Existing CAD, GIS, and VR software can generate accurate representations of the reality, but have no capabilities to simulate the impact of alternative urban regulations for large number of plots in a short period of time. CityZoom is a Decision Support System for urban planning, with a specific built-in city model, where data is represented in an object-oriented model representing the urban structure. CityZoom not only provide CAD tools, but a shell where different performance models can operate iteratively. It can simulate given urban regulations applied to a set of urban plots, as well as address environmental comfort issues such as shadow casting between buildings. Results can be displayed as tables, graphs, and in a 3D preview of the whole city or part of it. It’s also possible to export them to commercial GIS tools, to perform different data analysis. The graphical outputs make for an easy understanding of the results by laymen, an important feature for participatory planning, while the display of the correspondent numerical data enable correlations with indicators and parameters of urban quality.

title Visualizing scientific theories through multimedia in Materials Science [Visualização de teorias científicas através de multimídia em Ciência dos Materiais]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 74-77
summary The production of an electronic book at the site for high school teachers stimulated the reflection about the advantage of the transmission of the most important scientific theories (atomism and thermodynamics) using Materials Science (MS) as a course study and reaffirmed the power of animation and 3D graphical tools to improve the understanding and the spread of these theories. Supported in these reflections, the electronic book produced differentiates itself, in the way and the manner it was produced in relation to what has been presented on the Internet.

title Visualization of land surfaces in three dimensions [Visualización de superficies de terrenos en tres dimensiones]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 257-260
summary This paper presents a new technique based on the combination of the quadtree spatial data structure and the bitree subdivision for real-time visualization of height fields. We propose to model the surface by means of quadtrees, and to extract the multiresolution triangulation to visualize by means of the bitree criterion to each quadrant of the structure. This combination, at the same time that considerably reduces the amount of polygons to send to the graphical system for its visualization, eliminates the limitation imposed by restricted quadtrees on the levels of division between neighboring quadrants in the structure.

title Art and Virtual Reality Research [El arte y la realidad virtual de investigación]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 393-396
summary This text describes an art category which draws on the Augmented Reality (AR) Technology, which is capable of inspiring the copulation as well as the interaction, in real time, between images of reality, which might be those of the observer him/herself and the mental images, which might be artistic and generated by a computer. Stemming from the fusion of both types of image, where the former digitalises reality, whereas the latter simulates a three-dimensional image, a third image is obtained, which questions, it might be argued, reality itself. This text revolves around the attempt to demonstrate that AR is deemed a sub-group of Virtual Reality and its process as a whole as well as its imagetic system stems from the knowledge one has of the world, the exactness of reproduction one may attain of it and, finally, from the metaphor of one’s presence in it.

title In the Circus: Construction of Image and City [En el circo: Construcción de imagen y ciudad]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 439-443
summary The circus has a format that is repeated in the city. The city is a spectacle, it is the result of a carnival. All we perceive and see is held by a set of segments that allow this scheme to work. The tent that covers the circus is everyday life. Manipulation starts in a showcase. Images are juggled. There is a script that supports contents. Image is a very ancient sacrifice. An enchantment takes place in memory. The crowd is a filter. Its arrival is disappearance.

source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 187-190
summary This paper presents, as part of the promotional activities being conducted by the committee of Distance Education at FAU-UCV within an incoming project oriented towards the insertion of ICT (TIC) tools as teaching aids in the FAU-UCV, a free, informal, experimental course conducted monthly via Internet open to spanish-speaking professors and students of Architecture. This course aims to fill an empty space regarding the use of ICT tools as teaching aids to architectural professors. It is composed of a basic backbone regarding distance education fundamentals and illustrated month to month by ICT tools cards oriented to develop internet use abilities.

title Aesthetic intelligence, Navigating High Dimensional Spaces [Estética de inteligencia, la navegación de altos espacios dimensionales]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 83-86
summary Are some forms and spaces more significant than others? Can qualities of a space transcend ordinary recognition and resonate as extraordinary sensations and perceptions? Experiencing and creating objects, and images of places with iconic characteristics this is an attempt to extend dialogue into the vast dimensions of space by examining models for mapping spaces, contexts for use, and functions of elements. Finally, examples integrating these themes are presented in a pluralistic strategy for reflecting new spaces.

source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 232-236
summary El trabajo consiste en el análisis de “Baucis”, proyecto realizado por alumnos de séptimo semestre de la carrera de arquitectura de UAA, México. Se observó la manera en que los alumnos construyeron su proyecto y se concluyó en que la forma de sistematizar los procesos de diseño fue muy parecida a lo que sucede en el ambiente digital, donde se realizan conexiones múltiples facilitando la comunicación entre varios sujetos, sumando los esfuerzos de todos en un producto de diseño más completo, sustentado y fundamentado teóricamente, potencializando los conocimientos habilidades, aptitudes y actitudes de cada uno de los integrantes del equipo de diseño.
