LibViz: a visualisation toolkit to support the preservation of the Old Library
Ruhland, Kerstin; Trinity College Dublin. Graphics Vision and Visualisation Group; Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. Media Informatics Group
The Graphics, Vision and Visualisation (GV2) group in TCD's School of Computer Science and Statistics is working with the Preservation and Conservation Department of the Library, to develop a fully interactive 3-D model of the Old Library, known as the LibViz. LibViz demonstrates a significant innovation in the approach to the study of a single building. The research project is developing a system to visualise structural and environmental data relating to the Old Library. This includes visualising dust dispersion levels, temperature and relative humidity levels and the condition of structural elements, within an accurate to-scale recreation of the building and its key features. The model will also be used to document the impact of changes once a remediation plan is commenced.
