HistoVis

A spatio-temporal, immersive and interactive navigation within a 3D environment that is enriched with old photographs.

HistoVis is a WebGL based application using three.js & itowns frameworks.

About

Dissertation project centered on the visual exploration of historical image collections: an interactive approach through space and time.

A co-visualization of the historical photos within a 3D model of the photographed scene is proposed and the research aims for: (i) an artifact correction on the rendering side for the visualization of historical photographs inside a 3D environment; (ii) the graphic representation related to the enhancement of the user’s navigation and interaction.
