Study of computer modeling tools in historical environmental research [Comparação entre ferramentas de modelagem computacional em pesquisa sobre ambientes históricos]
SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 332-335
Computer simulation is an important learning tool for architecture, both for assessing projects and for investigating historical data. This study presents the initial results from research into computer simulation of historic spaces using computer modeling tools. The results discuss the viability of this kind of resource in studies of historical heritage, while at the same time consolidating learning procedures in virtual environments.
