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.  http://sketchupdate.blogspot.com/2011/08/explore-ancient-and-modern-with-rome-in.html.  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.
