Virtual reconstruction of the Acropolis Basilica

The Basilica reconstruction was a collaborative project between the School of Classics and the School Computer Science. Research Blog

A reconstruction of St Andrews Cathedral has also taken place.
The reconstruction was a research topic for successful computer science and information technology MSc. dissertations in the summer of 2010 and 2011.
Technical support was available in regular laboratory sessions; in addition students had input from experts in the history and architecture of the cathedral and direct access to the physical site.
A key innovative aspect of this project was to situate the reconstruction within the immersive 3D virtual world OpenSim. This allows visitors to explore the reconstruction through the proxy of an avatar.
