Cultural Heritage Reconstruction using Virtual and Augmented Reality

Nilufar Tukhboeva

Abstract: Augmented reality and virtual reality (commonly abbreviated as AR and VR respectively) are reality technologies that either enhance or replace a real-life environment with a simulated one. AR enhances your surroundings by adding digital elements to a live view, usually by using the camera on a smartphone. VR is a completely captivating experience that replaces a real-life environment with a simulated one. This article presents the connection between the reconstruction of medieval architecture and the further improvement of ways to use it effectively, the proper use of architectural monuments to improve travel opportunities is an important challenge. Particular attention is paid to the sustainability of old cities, preserving the buffer zone of architectural monuments, development can improve the tourism industry and convey new opportunities. The first was the creation of a highly appealing visualization system that allows a virtual visit to Aksaray (Amir Timur Palace in Shakhrisabz, Uzbekistan). The second is the possibility of using this technology for a virtual exploration of Aksaray, from a technical and architectural point of view.

Keywords: Augmented Reality (AR), 3D Reality- Based Modelling, Tourism Industry, Cultural Heritage, Aksaray.
