Chairs: Fabrizio I. APOLLONIO, Italy | Krzysztof KOSZEWSKI, Poland | Piotr KUROCZYŃSKI, Germany

Over the last few years the broad application and rapid technological development of 2D / 3D digitalization open toward new scenarios and new challenges from big data to semantic web technologies, and to the exponential growth in data accessible via digital libraries.
Urban historians, archeologist, architecture and art historians, as well as common people widely use the 3D Digital Reconstruction in many research projects, as well as they benefit through popular publications, multimedia products, or using digital applications in museums and different kind of exhibitions.
Within the broad field of the 3D Digital Reconstruction, the session would like to deepen the application of effective 3D-methods for the reconstruction of buildings or artefacts, able to increase our ability to understand the past. The 3D Digital Reconstruction process regularly draws heterogeneous sources, integrating evidence and/or archaeological excavation data with historical sources including texts and images, and furthermore filling the lacunas proposing interpretative hypotheses or reconstructive conjectures. Therefore, we should be able to analyze and evaluate the right contribution of those different sources to achieve the final outcome.

The purpose of the session is to concentrate on some still not solved questions related to digital documentation of the reconstructive process and re-contextualization of the results, mainly focusing on the following topics:

  • the critical analysis of the written sources and of the different kind of images documentations (drawings, sketches, paintings, engravings, photos, etc.
  • the metadata related to documentary sources
  • the knowledge representation and visualization standards
  • the interoperability and data access related to the digital hypothetical 3D Digital Reconstruction.
  • the methodology of using 3D Digital Reconstructions as research tools in multi-professional (or interdisciplinary) environments
  • the reliability of 3D Digital Reconstructions as research tools in terms of scientific regimes.
