The 4D lab aims to:
- Promote the use of 3D technologies in the documentation, analysis and dissemination of academic research dealing with the material past.
- Assist in the development of methods that use 3D technologies in the process of research, rather than focusing on an end product.
- Achieve high academic standards for the publication of 3D visualizations.
- Underline the fact that academic researchers have a responsibility to society to supply visually accurate and academically robust models of the past.
Why is it called '4'D?
What is the history behind the 4D Lab?
Old-school VR. The temple of Satricum visualized in the CAVE in the early 21st century in Amsterdam (based on the mediocre quality of the picture one could easily be mistaken to date it to the early '90s). The CAVE was discontinued many years ago, but got ultimately replaced by virtual reality goggles, and augmented reality apps, much more mobile and accessible than CAVE
