Rome in 4D

leave a comment »

A few years back, as co-founder of the American Institute for Roman Culture, I remember envisioning a variety of mapping tools which might better document the city of Rome and since then Google has come through and then some.  It’s more than mapping really, since the Google SketchUp/Building Maker project involves modeling historical realities from various periods as well as the present reality.  It’s potentially a great tool for envisioning the future as well as the past, a true 4D urban model with time being the fourth demension.
