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.

Learning Crowd Behavior

Panayiotis Charalambous, Yiorgos Chrysanthou

Presented at: Workshop on Crowd Simulation (co-located with CASA2010), Jun 2010

We present here our ongoing work on learning crowd behavior. The steering behavior of crowds from various video sources is tracked and databases of examples are generated. These examples contain various stimuli (metrics) that could affect the persons behavior. These databases are used to learn rules for crowd steering in an agent based framework using regression algorithms and more specifically, decision trees. Various simulations are run and the statistics measured at the simulation stage are compared to those of the original video to determine which stimuli affect an agents behavior the most.
