Pompeya como caso de estudio: La visualización digital aplicada a la arqueología de una ciudad vesubiana

Fabrizio I. Apollonio, B. Benedetti, P. Diarte Blasco, Marco Gaiani, Antonella Guidazzoli


The objective of the experience in Pompeii is to set up an Information System that will enable us to conserve, manage and integrate the data, files and documents gathered at different times and in different areas of the archeological dig; a 3D Unified Information System capable of providing us with a uniform framework for scientific visualization and web-based presentation of the set data -characterized by their heterogeneity- of this city and the Vesuvian Area in general. The final objective will be to facilitate the interpretation, exploration and, finally, analysis of a large volume of data with significative geo-spatial, temporal and semantic features.
