Western Han Dynasty

The Virtual Museum of the Western Han Dynasty: 2010. The Virtual Museum of the Western Han Dynasty Project was a joint research between the CNR-ITABC, Italy,  UC Merced, and the Xi’an Jiaotong University aimed to the digital documentation of archaeological sites, artifacts and cultural relics of the Western Han Dynasty. The anticipated outcome will be the creation of a virtual museum, based on collaborative environments, dedicated to the Western Han Dynasty and able to integrate new archaeological datasets coming from fieldwork activities (most part of them unpublished), monuments, and famous collections of artifacts of the Xi’an archaeological museums. All the archaeological datasets will be virtually reconstructed in a very accurate way, keeping all the spatial information even in the cyber space: GIS, remote sensing and laser scanning data, DGPS surveys, 3D reconstructions (landscapes, sites, monuments, artifacts).
