The digital reconstruction of classical Greek monuments in a second stage pilot project focused on the three dimensional digital recording of the early fourth century BCE tholos at Delphi in Greece.

Ashes2Art combines cutting-edge digital technologies, art history, archaeology, graphic and web design, animation and digital photography to recreate monuments of the ancient past. The project provides an extraordinary opportunity for faculty and students from various universities to combine skills from disparate disciplines in a web-based project available worldwide using open-source software. Faculty and students conduct focused research on specific monuments, visit the locations (when possible), shoot digital panoramas, write essays that summarize various opinions, document those sources with an extended bibliography and construct immersive 3D models based on published archaeological reports.That research is then published online utilizing technologies including Adobe Photoshop, Google Earth, SketchUp, Panoweaver, Tourweaver, Studio Max 3D, Cinema 4D, RealViz 5.0 Stitcher, Dreamweaver, Adobe Director and Macromedia Flash animation.
