3D Reconstruction of the old town of Xanthi


The old town of Xanthi is a masterpiece of traditional mud, brick and stone architecture and a substantial part of our Greek cultural heritage. It is located on the foothill of pine-wooded hills that define the borders of highland and lowland of Xanthi County. It is a prime example of local architecture that allows the visitor to discover its eclectic traditional architectural mix of buildings strongly influenced by 19th–20th century European architecture. This work deals with the idea of using open source systems in 3D graphics in order to produce realistic virtual walkthroughs for culture heritage promotion with a minimum budget and low cost infrastructure.
