    From March to July of1998, under the supporting program by IPA(Information Technology Promotion Association), an agency of the Ministry of International Trades and Industries of Japan, Texnai and the Department of Historical Science of the University of Cantabria executed Photo VR shooting excursions in the Cantabrian region of the North Spain for the purpose of creating a PhotoVR Database of the Paleolithic Arts which includes the Cave Arts and the Mobil Arts in the North Spain.

    During those five months, our cave shooting team mainly shot IPIX Spherical VR pictures in totally 22 caves in four provinces of this region such as Asturias, Cantabria, Viscaya, and Gipzcoa. At the same time, our mobil arts shooting team shot QTVR object movies of about 150 artifacts at each archeological museums located in Oviedo, Altamira, Santander, Bilbao and San Sebastian.
