Digital technology helps Italian archaeological

Recently, the Roman Archaeological Geographic Information System (SITAR) of the Roman Archaeological Heritage Special Supervision Bureau of the Italian Roman Ancient Heritage (SITAR) has received this annual European Ancient Heritage Award from the European Arctic Society. The SITAR system is an open data archaeological project that creatively involved in the protection of archaeological and cultural relics through the Internet.

"This is an important award for Italy." Italian cultural heritage, Minister of Events and Tourism, said that "this proves that Italy has achieved results in the efforts of the archaeological site, and has been recognized by the outside world.

"As a geographic reference information system, the SITAR system started to run in 2007.

The Roman Archaeological Heritage Special Supervision Bureau places the existing and new discovered information, progress, tools, and detailed tutorials of the Roman archaeological field, and the people of Italy and other countries can access each part of the open data items for free. While supervising the awareness of archaeological work and strengthen protection, it can also be admitted to the ongoing archaeological work and protection program.

"With the development and update of technology, this system has become a real ‘cultural intermediary between public administrations and citizens’, enhances people’s awareness in protecting urban space environments and cultural importance.

"The director of the Special Supervision Bureau of the Roman Archaeological Heritage" said.

As a country with the largest number of world cultural heritage, in recent years, Italy has increasingly developed with advanced digital technology to strengthen archaeological and cultural relics protection work, digital information database, virtual reality, 3D print modeling and other high-tech methods constantly developed. And applied to cultural heritage protection.

On September 1, Italy opened the cultural relics protection project called "Repair". In this project, robot technology is applied to the repair of the murals of Pompeii Ancient City Site.

The repair robot is equipped with a robot arm that scans the fragmentation. After the 3D digitization system, the precision robot arm will be accurately operated with advanced sensor help, put the mural fragments back to the original position, and avoid any damage.

"This project uses computer vision and cutting-edge technology in the artificial intelligence. There are often thousands of fragments, murals, mosaics, etc. Trigre said, "Repairing robots rearrange these thousands of debris, complete accurate and fine restoration.

"" The innovation and development of digital technology not only better protects cultural heritage, but also let more people participate. "The President of the High School of Italy, the president of the Advanced Research Institute, said that" Italy still faces many challenges in the field of archaeological and cultural relics protection. In the future, we need more digital technology to protect those precious sites and cultural relics. (This newspaper Roman Electric).
