Project Spotlight

A Virtual Exploration of Central Grounds Through Time and Space

Recent events around monuments and landmarks in Charlottesville have demonstrated the importance of presenting the history of the physical environment with completeness and authenticity. Many efforts have been made by the University community to achieve this goal. This program aims to use Geographic Information System (GIS) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies to spatially and temporally reference all the products from those efforts in order to build a centralized system to present the findings and data. With 4D web-mapping and VR, the project will provide an engaging learning environment for future generations to learn the rich history of UVA’s physical environment.
