3-Dimensional Measurement and Virtual Reconstruction of Ancient Lost Worlds of Europe (MURALE)
|Duration||2000 - 2003|
Tools will be developed for the reconstruction of a currently excavated archaeological site for different periods throughout the time of its occupation. This includes the development of 3D acquisition systems that can measure a range of objects of different dimensions to produce accurate and realistic looking 3D models and of tools for virtual reconstruction, documentation and classification of objects ranging from pottery sherds to entire urban building complexes. The project will provide archaeologists with the tools to support the analysis and restoration of their finds. The virtual artefacts and buildings together with the related information will be stored in a multimedia database with appropriate searching and querying functionality. 3D visualisation technologies will be developed for the interactive presentation of archaeological results in museums and via the internet, to the broad public as well as to experts. To provide Europe with an archaeological lead.
