This Bosnian-Herzegovinian national monument is located in Crkvine, at Cim, in the north-west part of Mostar. During the archaeological excavations, parts of a basilica were found, and these parts show that the basilica consisted of a narthex, naos and presbytery formed of apses.
Plan of Basilica
We propose to create and test a natural interaction interface for manipulating objects based upon a Kinect camera driving a Unity3D application that allows to explore a virtual space, select virtual objects and manipulate them. The content of the testbed consists of the reconstruction of an early Christian basilica from Cim, BH, of which some findings are shown in the Museum of Herzegovina in Mostar, BH.
