Abstract:

Modeling the Giza Plateau in 3D

Since the early 1980s, the availability of computer-generated illustrations, particularly in 3D, have slowly entered the archaeologist’s visualization toolkit. With their greater specificity and flexibility, and sharing aspects of technical photography and technical drawing, 3D computer-generated views have come to dominate the process of archaeological visualization, both at Giza and elsewhere.

Today the Giza Project at Harvard is taking this process one step further by combining recent advances in real-time computer graphics, 3D visualization and database construction to allow for the creation of the first real-time 3D models of the Giza Plateau, directly derived from archaeological data. These data include a comprehensive GIS database of historic and modern archaeological maps, aerial and satellite photography, and the extensive excavation database of the Giza Archives from the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition. This new dynamic visual database aims to provide high-resolution, real-time visualizations for archaeological research, publication in both traditional and electronic forums, and for teaching in a virtual reality theater at Harvard University.

This presentation will review the technologies being used to produce this next-generation visualization, and will look at how this new, archaeologically correct, 3D map of the Giza Plateau and its individual monuments changes our view of Giza in the Old Kingdom. It will also describe how such new visualization technologies may influence the way future work is carried out, both at Giza and at other archaeological sites.
