Abstract

The GRealities app provides an Augmented Reality experience, inside the premises of the Municipal Art Gallery of Chania, Crete, Greece. While interacting with the GRealities app, users get immersed into an exciting experience which intuitively offers significant information about the history and use of the exhibits. Users view in 3D, observe and analyze special features of the exhibits but also related historical events, in conjunction with simultaneous viewing of the real-world exhibit and the digital augmentation.
