Andreas Aristidou, Efstathios Stavrakis, Yiorgos Chrysanthou

Cyprus Computer Society journal, Issue 25, pages 42-49, Apr 2014

We aim to preserve the Cypriot folk dance heritage, creating a state-of-the-art publicly accessible digital archive of folk dances. Our dance library, apart from the rare video materials that are commonly used to document dance performances, utilises three dimensional motion capture technologies to record and archive high quality motion data of expert dancers.

Reconstruction of everyday life in 19th century Nicosia

Panayiotis Charalambous, Hesperia Iliadou, Charalambos Apostolou, Yiorgos Chrysanthou

Presented at: 4th international conference on Progress in Cultural Heritage Preservation (EuroMed'12), Limassol, Cyprus, Nov 2012

This paper presents the first stages of a larger project concerning the study and realization of a 3D interactive environment of everyday life in 19th century Nicosia. The presented study involves the recreation of the built urban environment (i.e. the architecture of the city) based on historic and archival information taken from the first Land Registry documentations taking place on the island at the end of the Ottoman era by British engineers.

Reviving Nicosia of the XIXth Century

Hesperia Iliadou, Panayiotis Charalambous, Yiorgos Chrysanthou

Presented at: European Association for Urban History Conference (EAUH'12), Jun 2012

n this paper we describe our on-going work on the virtual reconstruction and population of XIXth Century Nicosia. The project involves the development of a semi-automatic pipeline that will take as input maps and land-registry deeds and will give as a result a 3D model of the urban space inhabited by animated virtual characters, guided by the historic information. The aim is to present a unique insight to the everyday life of a bygone era. In the city, now divided by a wall into Muslim north and Christian south, a population of Muslims coexisted with the Christian-Orthodox population as well as with other minorities, in an interesting intertwine of culture and religion located in the dense built environment within the city walls.
