Résumé :

Virtual Kyoto is a virtual time-space created on a computer for the purpose of investigating the past, the present and the future of the historical city of Kyoto. Using the cutting-edge technologies in GIS and VR, we built Virtual Kyoto which is 4D-GIS that comprise a series of 3D-GIS at different points in time. Our 3D city modeling begins with the present Kyoto and then goes back to the past, including those soon after and before the World War II, the Taisho and Meiji eras, pre-modern Edo era and finally back to Heian era when the city of Kyoto was founded in the late 8th century. Creating Virtual Kyoto includes the following projects : a) Archiving geo-referenced materials such as current digital maps, old topographic maps, cadastral maps, aerial photos, picture maps, street photos, landscape paintings, archaeological sites data, and historical documents ; b) Creating a database of all existing buildings including machiyas (traditional town houses), early modern buildings, shrines and temples including historical and cultural heritages ; c) Creating 3D VR models of the above buildings ; and d) Estimating and simulating land use and landscape changes over the study periods using aforementioned materials. Virtual Kyoto is an infrastructure to place various digitally archived materials associated with the city, and to disseminate Kyoto’s subtle and sophisticated forms of cultures and arts to the world over the internet. The web-based system provides user-friendly interface to explore historical materials of cultures and arts in the geographical context of Kyoto with its historical landscapes. Virtual Kyoto should play a valuable role in the assistance for urban landscape planning of Kyoto as well as sending rich information about Kyoto to the world through the internet.
