This paper presents a Virtual Archaeology application realized using ViSMan (Cineca), an open-source framework for visualization and interaction with scientific 3Dmodels connected to digital archives of data. The source for data was research project (survey and documentation, study and communication) carried out by the University of Bologna in the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Through a collaboration with Cineca VisITLab - experienced in virtual environments design for research and education purposes - virtual models were used as 3D archive for management and visualization of this huge amount of relevant data, thus developing a spatially structured interface for data retrieval and contextualization. The implemented application - ViSMan-DHER - allows navigation through several reconstructed Scenarios; access is provided to a rich archive of data, related to the whole region territory as well as pertaining to a single wall-painting. Some remarks and hints for future development are listed in the conclusive section.

Abstract

This paper presents a Virtual Archaeology application realized using ViSMan (Cineca), an open-source framework for visualization and interaction with scientific 3Dmodels connected to digital archives of data. The source for data was research project (survey and documentation, study and communication) carried out by the University of Bologna in the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Through a collaboration with Cineca VisITLab - experienced in virtual environments design for research and education purposes - virtual models were used as 3D archive for management and visualization of this huge amount of relevant data, thus developing a spatially structured interface for data retrieval and contextualization. The implemented application - ViSMan-DHER - allows navigation through several reconstructed Scenarios; access is provided to a rich archive of data, related to the whole region territory as well as pertaining to a single wall-painting. Some remarks and hints for future development are listed in the conclusive section.
