New Architectural Work on the Akropolis of Selinous, Sicily: Towards a Digital Platform for Cultural Heritage

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

While many papers in this volume and in other recent architectural publications have been enhanced by digitally generated imagery, architectural historians have not often considered explicitly the impact of the increasing reliance on digital methods for the recording, analysis, and publication of antiquity. The relative silence in the literature does not yet reflect the many lively conversations taking place among researchers who have experimented with and adopted a range of methods. Some tools for spatial analysis such as GIS have become standards in the field, whereas imaging techniques like Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) show great potential in a variety of applications. Architectural historians and preservationists have been leading innovators with CAD modeling of heritage sites, and the interest and potential for 3D at the site has been renewed lately with the arrival of new software and improved hardware. The present contribution concerns the studies conducted by the University of New York on the Acropolis of Selinunte and in particular the study of architecture in the central area, between the temple C, the temple b and the Temple R
