The research aims at reconstruction and visualization of “Virtual Time-Space of Kyoto,” which provides Kyoto’s 3D-GIS starting from the present going back to the past through 20th to 17th century, and finally Heian period (12th to 8th century, when a capital was founded in Kyoto), based on 3D city model of present Kyoto, and available historical documents and information, employing new visualization technologies including virtual reality (VR). The research has introduced 3D city model of present Kyoto, which has been automatically generated by recently developed software, using LIDAR data, 2D digital map, and aerial photograph. There remain a lot of Kyo-machiyas (traditional townhouse in Kyoto, machiya hereafter), temples, shrines and modern heritage buildings in Kyoto because it eluded damage from World War II. At present, highly efficient GIS and VR technologies have been applied throughout the research; (a) to store locations and attributes of presently existing buildings including machiyas, shrines, temples and modern heritage buildings as a database; (b) to archive and geo-reference materials including Yamahokos (floats) of the Gion Festival, as well as old cadastral maps, street photos and aerial photos; and (c) to visualize urban landscape changes through times using aforementioned materials.
