Dipylon Society participates in the project "Virtual Street Museum. Innovative Techniques, Methods and Tools for Documentation, Protection and Promotion of Cultural Heritage", co-funded by the European Union and national resources through the Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship & Innovation Operational Program.
The project aims to create a publicly accessible online platform that can display a significant amount of historical and archaeological material to the general public and can be used for research and educational purposes. The material is based on the research of historical topography carried out by the Dipylon Society and will be presented using augmented reality techniques, thus enabling the "reproduction" of the transformations and differentiations of the urban space in its historical course.
The virtual representation of aspects of the historical topography will be implemented through the targeted selection of key routes in Athens and will constitute a "Virtual Street Museum" that will highlight the invisible elements of the ancient topography on the canvas of the modern city, while at the same time transforming the road into a museum.
