Aside from the detailed digital reconstruction of the fortress we also create a landscape model of 2500 square kilometers that will give an impression of the whole area of settlement with the Limes, neighbouring fortresses, streets, villas etc.
Regarding the size and demand for high quality this project is without precedent so far.
Various techniques and procedures will have to be developed to handle the enourmos amount of data.
After completion of the extension of the Limesmuseum in the autumn of 2005, the 3D-animations will be presented in the remodeled media room as a significant part of a large scale multivision-presentation. Excerpts will also be shown on two large scale displays in the exhibit rooms
