Historical modelling of cities

Apr 29, 20237:00 AM - 4:00 PM

STCC - niveau Garden, halls 3 & 4


The Digital Humanities Laboratory (DHLAB) has been developing innovative methodologies to create 4D reconstructions of the urban evolution of cities in the past. By leveraging digital tools to automatically process graphic and textual sources, we are able to extract a comprehensive picture of how cities have developed over time, capturing both physical and social contexts. The wealth of geospatially structured data that results from our methods provides researchers with a valuable resource for studying the evolution of these cities. Moreover, our 4D models offer a unique opportunity for the public to gain insight into the past of these cities, making it possible to visualise and understand their evolution.
