Reuse scenario

Virtual educational museums on city history

The scenario will be centered around the city of Amsterdam, making use of already existing data for 3D reconstructions of the Amsterdam Vaalkenbourg quarter from the 17th to the 19th century. The 4D Research Lab of the University of Amsterdam, as member of project partner Time Machine Organisation (TMO), will demonstrate the reuse of 3D models, originally created as part of an extensive research project, to be transferred into an educational setting. Around 200 buildings of the historic borough Vaalkenbourg will be rendered and modelled to depict this part of Amsterdam at three different moments in time in an online VR visualization, to educate students, citizens and tourists on site and in remote locations how the area evolved, and the cityscape transformed over time.
