Reconstitution virtuelle de Rome Antique

Abstract : From 1900 to 1942, the architect Paul Bigot had reconstructed a model of ancient Rome in 3D in plaster measuring some 70 m2 (11 m x 6 m). Classified as a heritage piece under the Historic Monuments section, it was installed at the University of Caen. Today, a multidisciplinary team composed of historians and computer experts have been working for the past eight years in order to reconstruct this ancient city in 3D : monument by monument and quarter byquarter. It would help in validating architectural restoration hypotheses as well as allow a virtual exploration on the internet, on interactive terminals and in a future Virtual Reality Center. Apart from furthering science in this field, a 3D image with animation and characters would be an excellent way of popularizing research results.
