This paper presents the work that was accomplished in preparing multimedia products for cultural heritage interpretation and entertainment. Data fusion techniques were applied to three cases: the remains of Temple C of Selinunte, Sicily, the Byzantine Crypt of Santa Cristina, Apulia and a bronze sculpture from the 6th century BC found in Ugento, Apulia. It is shown that three-dimensional modeling from range data coupled to photo-realistic texture mapping is an effective way to present the spatial information for environments and artefacts. Spatial sampling and range measurement uncertainty considerations are addressed by giving the results of some tests on different range cameras. Three-dimensional (3D) information generated by photogrammetric and CAD modeling complements the approach. Results on a CDROM, a DVD, virtual 3D theatre, holograms, video animations and web pages have been prepared for these projects.
