VAIRoma: A Time Based Visual Analytics Interface for Art and Architecture in Rome

Throughout the humanities, emerging digital technologies have begun to offer researchers powerful new tools with which to assemble and analyze archival materials. At UNC Charlotte, the Digital Arts Center in the College of Arts + Architecture, and the Charlotte Visualization Center in the College of Computing and Informatics propose to create a working prototype of a time based visual analytics tool, VAIRoma, (Visual Analytic Interface for Roma) that will focus upon the study of historical data in the city of Rome. Specifically, this prototype will focus on both art and architecture, disciplines that require extensive geospatial and temporal information. We have selected Rome because of its intricately interconnected histories and depth of resources.
