3-Dimensional Measurement and Virtual Reconstruction of Ancient Lost Worlds of Europe (MURALE)

  • Schindler, Konrad, (Co-Investigator (CoI))
  • Leberl, Franz (Principal Investigator (PI))

Project: Research project

Description

A currently excavated archaeological site will be reconstructed for the different periods throughout the complete time of its pro years occupation. The development of 3D acquisition systems that can measure a range of objects of different dimensions to produce accurate and convincing results will be made. Precise and realistic looking 3D models of the natural environment and the urban development of the site will be made.
Documentation and classification of pottery shards will be made. The project will provide archaeologists with the tools to support the analysis and restoration of their finds. The virtual artefacts, buildings and information will be stored in a database extended with MPEG-7 compatible features. Searching on the basis of 3D shape will be one of its innovative features. High levels of realism and precision will be reached by the integrated visualisation of landscape, buildings, and artefacts - all true to the era that they represent and will provide Europe with an archaeological lead.
