One of the goals of the Amsterdam Time Machine is to populate the digital grayscale map of historical Amsterdam with 3D reconstructions of its buildings throughout time. Already now, several 3D models for different buildings and times have been developed by researchers, heritage professionals, and/or citizens with a passion for Amsterdam and its rich history. In order to make it possible to integrate all the existing and future 3D models into the Time Machine, it is essential that a clear workflow is developed, from the creation of the model to its publication.
During this data sprint (in collaboration with the 4D Research Lab), researchers with experience in 3D modelling of historical Amsterdam will share their methods and experiences in dealing with issues such as using and citing historical sources; how to deal with uncertainties in reconstructions; and how to publish models with solid accompanying documentation. Participants will also be invited to bring their own input and data to work on 3D models on the spot.
13.00-13.15: Welcome and introduction
13.15-16.15: Work on 3D models (in groups)
16.15-17.00: Short presentation of results per group
More information on the programme will be made available soon on the event page (in Dutch).
