Behind the Lines is a prototype open source based application testing the possibilities of building an informtation environment for the sharing of argumentation in the support of executing virtual reconstructions. This research is being undertaken within the framework of the ITN-DCH project. With this site, we are testing the ability to build a practical implementation of a CIDOC-CRM virtual reconstruction argumentation model with commonly available CMS tools.

The goals of the system are to test:

1) feasibility of creating system on MySQL platform while respecting proper modeling of knowledge provenance

2) the efficiency and coherency of linking between documents, building and find sources, arguments and 3D models

The first test case will involve inputting data with regards to a virtual reconstruction of the Temple of Hephasteion, based on a 3D Point Cloud provided by NTUA and parametric modeling being carried out by Anaïs Guillem.
