The VSim Project Repository and Archive: Interface software and online repository and archive to facilitate distribution and

Development of the VSim software, which provides a guided interface for educational 3D visualizations, and a repository for 3D models of historical sites to support sharing and peer review.

Funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities is requested for (1) the development of production-level software that facilitates peer review and educational use of academically generated computer reconstruction models of historic urban environments, and (2) the creation of an online project repository and archive for the dissemination of three-dimensional content across grade levels and humanities disciplines. The first major goal of the proposal is to build a production-level version of VSim, the prototype interface software for interaction with 3D content that was developed through NEH Start-Up Grant HD-50958-10. The second major goal of the proposal is to create an online project repository and archive to facilitate peer review and dissemination of academically generated 3D content. The long-term vision of the project is to build a thriving community of scholars and educators sharing their 3D content and leveraging existing and new academic modeling work for broad educational use through a project repository and archive focused on the real-time explorations of reconstruction of historic urban environments.
