Join us in our new addition to the Elise Webinar Series.

In this webinar, Danny Vandenbroucke from KU Leuven will walk us through:

  • What are Virtual, Augmented, Mixed and Extended Realities, and their evolution in time.
  • How Immersive realities applied to the geospatial domain can improve public services. Illustrated with examples in different sectors.
  • Zoom in one example: Augmented reality for managing underground assets.
  • The challenges and efforts to achieve interoperability


Augmented reality



We will have the special contribution of 

  • Vicente Bayarri from Gim Geomatics to share their experience in virtually staging la Cueva de Altamira in Spain, known as the Sistine Chapel of the Paleolithic. Vicente and his team recreated the exact moment when the famous bison was painted in the ceiling of the cave.
  • Their work required a combination of archaeological data with laser scanning, photogrammetry, and geospatial science.
  • This study contributes to heritage preservation, tourism regulation, public outreach, and archaeological research.
