Abstract

Recent research projects led in Cluny have focused on interoperability issues between computer-aided design (CAD) and geographic information system (GIS). In one of these projects, the Gunzo project went through a complete digital restitution of what was the largest church in the world during five centuries. In another project, a 3D GIS of the Cluny region was set up and led to the idea of designing an online historical and archaeological 3D database. This involves the development of time-based 3D data management functionalities in which both CAD and GIS could exchange information. Thanks to the close collaboration between interdisciplinary fields, the team managed to formulate the basis of a joint workflow. These steps are promising and could meet in the future this long-time dream of the scientific community: to be able to tie together CAD and GIS models with temporality on a single georeferenced collaborative platform, so closely that it will be possible to navigate through the history of a city in 3D.

Acknowledgments

The project could not take place without the support and help of Cluny 2010 funders: the “Conseil Régional de Bourgogne”, the European Union (FEDER), Arts et Métiers ParisTech engineering school and the “Conseil Général de Saône et Loire”. We also thank the “Musée d’Art et d’Archéologie de Cluny”, the“Centre d’Etudes Clunisiennes”, the “Fédération Européenne des Sites Clunisiens”, the French Ministry of Culture and communication, the “Mairie de Cluny”, the “Centre des Monuments Nationaux (CMN)” and the “Direction Régionale des Affaires Culturelles”.
