Vienna Hofburg 3D digital model

In collaboration with the Department of Art History of the Institute of History of Art and Musicology at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), the Architecture Collection at the Albertina and the ÖAW‘s Austrian Center for Digital Humanities, the Simlab is developing an interactive 3D model of Vienna‘s Hofburg Palace from the mediaeval period to modern times as a dynamic visualization tool for use in humanities and technological research. The project is intended as a contribution to the development of the digital humanities, using state-of-the-art technologies to visualize research findings in the field of art history, process them for use in future research projects and make them available for the long term through open access publication.
