Abstract:  The Acropolis Restoration Service created the upgraded virtual tour web application that allows the interactive investigation of the Acropolis archaeological site. The application uses high resolution panoramic images, which are complemented with textual information about the monuments and selected areas of interest. Users can orientate themselves through an orthophotomap of the Acropolis and choose different viewing positions depending on the monument or their interests, following their own route through the archaeological site. The images facilitate detailed zooming onto the monuments, making visible the erosion of the marble, the cracks, the conservation repairs. They also allow the observation of areas that are inaccessible to the public, e.g. the circuit walls or the interior of the Parthenon, while a number of night shots are included to demonstrate the impression of the monuments off visiting hours. Finally, textual content provides information on the history and architecture of the monuments, as well as on the restoration works. The application has been created through the collaboration of the Documentation Office of YSMA with culturPlay.
