In the spring of 2016, CVAST scanned the The Galerie de paléontologie et d’anatomie comparée (Gallery of Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy) at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris (MNHN).
Building on the success of the Virtual Zooarchaeology of the Arctic Project (VZAP), we are expanding the collections on a global scale. Through collaborations we are creating virtual osteological comparative collections from around the world.
3D imaging and computer animation are harnessed to bring fossil dinosaurs “back to life”.
The virtualization of the Collection of Antiquities hosted in the Lemonopoulos and MacKechnie Galleries at the Tampa Museum of Art for global public sharing.
A predictive model that generates real-time risk maps for the Zika virus in order to target mosquito control efforts.
The virtualization of the Greek and Roman collection of the Archaeological Museum of Siracusa and of main urban and suburban archaeological sites representing the archaeological context for artifacts in the collection.
CVAST has undertaken the overall reappraisal of the Karam collection of archaeological artefacts kept in the Special Collection Department of the University of South Florida Libraries, in order to virtualize it and share it digitally with the public.
Ancient Mediterranean warships and their main offensive weapon, large bronze rams mounted on their bows at the waterline.
We are using a combination of surface and microCT scans to understand how the range of diets and behaviours seen in modern birds is linked to beak and skull shape, and their biomechanical performance.
CVAST archaeologist and art historian Kamila Oles and landscape archaeologist Lukasz Banaszek are realizing Pablo Picasso’s dream of a great monument and the world’s largest concrete sculpture, which -although planned- has never been constructed.
