From Site to Region, Cultrual Relics Combined with Virtual Reality--On Exhibition of Historical Buildings of Peking Old City in Digital Museum
Abstract: The historical buildings in Peking old city are similar in age, and rich in both quantity and variety. Thus the historical streets are kept relatively intact. To present such relics we need introduct them from site to region, and combine cultural relics with virtual reality. In doing this, the digital museum has many advantages, such as less restrictive in space or content, more interactive and responsive, vivid and intact in exhibition, and so on. So the digital museum can be one of the best way in exhibiting these cultural relics, especially in displaying a comprehensive situation of the historical buildings and streets. This paper analyzes the application status, advantages and existing problems of the digital museum on exhibition of the historical buildings of Peking old city.
