This work was carried out over the past eight years through the Atalaya3D project, which aims to make the cultural heritage of the ten public Andalusian universities accessible. Since 2010, the project has been a pioneer in the field of 3D scanning of sculptures and historical sites, opening up restricted areas virtually through 3D web displays. Moreover, in addition to the website, a mobile app allows visitors to browse these institutions’ vast heritage and examine it before visiting the campus in a 3D environment. More than 70 artworks and historical buildings have been accurately scanned using the latest 3D scanning technologies, so that we now have the geometry and colour of the pieces documented in detail. QR codes make it easier to reach the relevant information about our universities’ heritage via any mobile device (phone or tablet).
