LeeceAR aims to help visualize how historical structures looked and were used when established. The app recognizes existing settings of historical sites and overlays them with 3D reconstructions.
This app demonstrates the AR category of Historical Modelling and Reconstruction
. In this category, digital visualizations of an assumed past are imposed onto a relevant physical location, such as an archeological site. The virtual content, in this case, does not directly represent indexical archival materials, such as documents or photos, but rather it is a result of processing research materials and thus it reflects an educated assumption about the past in-situ.Read more:
