Virtual Rome


Virtual Rome is a project coordinated and directed by Maurizio Forte (up to December 2007) and Sofia Pescarin for CNR and Luigi Calori for CINECA. The project involves the use of a virtual reality system for accessing contents, like a real in-progress laboratory about ancient landscape, with an updatable interactive view that can be integrated with other projects related to the Roman landscape.
Paper published in "Notizie dal CINECA" nr.61.


The main goal of Virtual Rome is the study and reconstruction of the ancient landscape of Rome and its visualization by means of virtual reality through the Internet (sistema VR webGIS pdf) and based on Open Source libraries.
