Urban History 4D @ CIPA 2019 in Ávila

In September the research group was happy to present their recent work at the CIPA 2019 in Ávila. Four of our researchers travelled to the beautiful Ávila, a Spanish fortified city located about 2 hours west of Madrid. The fortification is well known and certainly played a role when Ávila was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. The imposing Walls of Ávila were built from the 11th to the 14th centuries. We started with a poster presentation entitled "Historical Photos and Visualizations: Potentials for Research" presented some ideas and visualizations. This year’s conference slogan was: Documenting the past for a better future, which fit very well with the Time Machine Workshop. The participants could get a glimpse of some associated projects like our Urban History 4D project. Jonas Bruschke and Cindy Kröber had prepared a mini hackathon centered on usability testing and evaluation using personas. Lastly, we used the opportunities to present our 4D Browser Prototype in the demo Session, were we received a lot of very useful and positive feedback.
