Accessing the Inaccessible: Valuing Virtual Reality and Remote Access to Pleito Cave
This presentation showcases the contemporary value of Virtual Reality as a means to experience difficult to access, sensitive cultural sites for different stakeholder groups including researchers, land owners, and Native groups. Here, we show the enhanced virtual reality environment of Pleito Cave, a fragile world class rock art site with accessibility limitation. We discuss how scientific research can be translated into VR data sets to speak to diverse communities and different needs, providing management tools as well as educational opportunities. As a group presentation, the Wind Wolves Preserve and the Tejon Indian Tribe will have representatives appearing via remote access within the VR environment during the talk.
