Launch website Yar City 3D

(01-12-2015)

As part of a cooperation agreement between Ghent University, the Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography and the Xinjiang Turpan Bureau of Cultural Heritage, two months of field work were conducted at the archaeological site of Yar City in the summer of 2014 and 2015. The site was entirely captured in 3D, using various acquisition techniques (such as photo modelling using a UAV, topographic measurements, …). The result of this campaign, including various 3D models and movies, can now be checked out at the website YarCity3D (http://cartogis.ugent.be/yarcity3d/).
