Design Variations of Mount Olympus’ Relief in a Virtual Reality Environment

Giorgos LOUKAKIS [1]

14 7

The purpose of this article is to describe the procedures and practices that were followed during the early stage of a research entitled “Use of game engines in the design and implementation of Mount Olympus in a virtual reality environment” - funded through a scholarship by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation - and to present the results of the design process that was followed. The main aim of this stage was an attempt to approach the modern methodologies of representation and production of virtual interactive landscapes as well as to familiarize with the use of the available software for the creation of interactive representations that can be integrated into a narrative digital geo-environment.
