3D GIS Interactive Visualization of the Archaeological Sites in Qatar for Research and Learning





3D GIS, archaeology, culture heritage preservation, web-based information system, 3D visualization


This project provides a proficient approach to coordinate archeological ex-ercises, information administration, digital object representation, and spa-tial investigation. The proposed framework furnishes the client with the in-tuitive investigation of the 3D model artifacts along with detailed infor-mation on specific points of interest alongside their 3D geographic infor-mation system (3D GIS). A parallel result is the utilization of fully trans-parent and cost-effective open source tools and free software. The work ad-dressed the creation of a computerized system that aids classification, ad-ministration, and representation of archeological discoveries inside a 3D web-based repository; and the utilization of 3D digital models as a restora-tion of the artifacts to allow navigation through the data; besides enabling 3D GIS to spatially store, share, envision and examine complex archeologi-cal components; This work is one of the first of its type in Qatar to archive and record all of the archeological data from the Murwab site in Qatar.
