Some architectural and archaeological visualizations that might be useful examples:

The Theban Mapping Project is a quite remarkable project – underway for more than 30 years, it’s a map, a plan, an interactive space, and a visual/spatial index to photographs. Watch some of the videos and explore some of the spaces. Take a look at KV14, which provides a good tour that combines animation, photographs, and photographs-superimposed onto 3D images.

Pure Land: Inside the Mogao Grottoes at Dunhuang was a Smithsonian exhibit that provided a “360-degree panoramic projection theater that gives a true-to-life experience of being inside one of the caves. More here and here.

The plan of St. Gall, a famous medieval architectural plan, has been built into models at various times – not, as far as I know, a digital model. It’s interesting to compare the various models and see what assumptions they make.
