To achieve aim a), facilities for capturing and recording of art objects will be established in two representative areas of the cultural heritage and history in Northern Greece (Dion, Vergina). Under aim b), a database mechanism will be established for achieving the retrieval of images and text. Under aim c), a prototype CD-I covering historical aspects of ancient Macedonia will be made. The project will develop two demonstrators, one in the Byzantine Museum in Athens, and another in the University of Thessaloniki.
