The general aim of the MRP - Masada Research Project is to create a comprehensive digital documentation of the archaeological site of Masada. Integrated 3D digital survey methodologies allowed the acquisition of all the information necessary for the creation of a digital database. This paper describes some results about the interaction between complex sets of data, acquired with various tools, and its dissemination through contemporary representation systems. The research conducted explains how the “migration” of reality in a virtual environment depends strongly on the structure of an efficient workflow and the proper use of available technologies. Digital tools allow the creation of customized and open-ended knowledge systems through which users can interface with the elements of the space around them interactively and be/become more conscious about the archaeological heritage.
