3D PROCEDURAL RECONSTRUCTION OF URBAN LANDSCAPES FOR THE PURPOSES OF A WEB-BASED HISTORICAL ATLAS
The ”Czech Historical Atlas” project is a part of the NAKI II programme of the Czech Ministry of Culture and aims to create the following two main outputs: a printed atlas of the Czech history in the 20th century and an electronic map portal on the Czech history. This paper is focused on the latter mentioned output and specifically on the design of 3D scenes which should supplement the 2D map content. Currently existing literature is briefly reviewed and the procedural modelling is found to be suitable for the needs of urban landscape reconstruction. Furthermore, available data sources in the Czech republic are discussed and important aspects of modelling are presented.
