Using Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence as methods of digital humanities, this collaborative project endeavour by researchers from the Faculty of Science (FOS) and Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) is focused on documentation (geometric, architectural, historical) through 2D and 3D drawings, creating digital and interactive maps for geo-spatial, contextual, and phenomenological navigation. This inventory of architectural heritage allows the creation of an interactive and open access platform designed for education, conservation, cultural management, safeguarding awareness, social responsibility, as well as for tourism development.
