English abstract:
In recent years the use of remote sensing devices like laser scanners in the documentation of excavation sites or cultural heritage sites has led to huge point cloud models from these sites. These data sets may cover complete sites including galleries, corridors, halls, and open places. Orienting oneself in the point cloud becomes a challenge, if one is not familiar with the layout of the site. Therefore we propose a graph-based guidance system to show tourists round the point cloud models. The tourists can navigate interactively through the point cloud, but they are tied to a predefined 3D graph which represents the possible ways, and which connects the points of interest.
