On the 28th of May, 2018 Laura Micoli of the Politecnico di Milano unit presented the final results of the CHT2 project during the first day of the JPICH International Workshop on Funded Research Projects hosted at the Venaria Reale in Turin, in the cluster “Re-Thinking Urban Spaces and Landscape as Cultural HeritageAssets”
Sara Gonizzi Barsanti and Laura Micoli of the POLIMI unit presented the results of the CHT2 project at the Florence Heri-tech conference held in Florence from 16th to 18th May 2018.

The Banners for the “Inspired by the Great Exhibition of the North” are ready!
The Banners will show to the general public, in an easy and attractive way, the work done by the UK partner on their tests site and also an overview of the work done by all the partners in the project.
Newcastle University is preparing for the “Inspired by the Great Exhibition of the North” to present their result achieved during the CHT2 project.
The 3D model of the Birdoswald site has been produced using airborne laser scanning: to the acquired data a vegetation filtering has been applied to have a clean view of the site, a 3D terrain model was done and then the building have been added separately. The final model was then 3D printed by the Marine offshore & subsea technology lab of the School of Engineering in Newcastle University and will be visible during the exposition.
On January 26th, 2018, Sara Gonizzi Barsanti finalized her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, in the framework of the JPI CHT2 project. The methodology developed aims at optimizing procedures for 3D capturing ancient structures and objects with Computer Vision methods, to obtain 3D models with a level of complexity suitable for simulations with structural analysis. This allows analyzing structures that have been modified in time, whose addition can be more easily identified for their different mechanical properties. Such data, in addition to the reading of the wall surfaces, allows generating information useful for the diachronic evaluation of an object or a structure, finalized to its 4D modeling (3D + time).
The Italian partner has published findings on the Milan Roman Circus reconstruction in a special issue of Geosciences journal on “Remote sensing and geosciences for archaeology”. Entitled “Accurate Reconstruction of the Roman Circus in Milan by Georeferencing Heterogeneous Data Sources with GIS”, the paper can be viewed directly in Geosciences.
