Four Dimensional Cultural Heritage World

Objective

This project4D-CH-World aims to analyze, design, research, develop and validate an innovative system integrating the latest advances in computer vision and learning, as well as, 3D modeling and virtual reality for the rapid and cost-effective 4D maps reconstruction in the wild for personal use, and support the aim of our European Commons and the digital libraries EUROPEANA and UNESCO Memory of the World (MoW) to build a sense of a shared European cultural history and identity.
The main goal of the 4D-CH-World is to enable historians, architects, archaeologists, urban planners, or any other affiliated scientists to reconstruct from available data on repositories, study, understand, preserve or document urban environments, as well as, organizing collections of thousands of images (spatially and temporally) in generating novel views of historical scenes by interacting with the time-varying model itself. The evolving steps depiction helps understanding the cultural trends, performing behavioral analysis, exploiting the impact of the available raw resources in building development, further analyzing the urban economy factors, and simulating a future urban growth in order to understand the future demands, and satisfy in time the people’s concrete needs. Education system will have the opportunity to exploit this innovative system to motivate students and help them better understand many things in an amusing way. Finally, pupils, university students, tourists, communes, future mechanics and economists, will observe urban environment changes through time, not just read it, and therefore understand it, so as, future plans of action, regarding urban renewal or sustainable development would be less likely to fail.
