The field of Documentation includes the recording and organization of the multimodal elements and the environmental experiences in data bases, aiming at their post-processing. In this application field there is a wide range of research areas that Lecad materializes, focusing on:
- Volos urban soundscape database
- Development of a 3d digital model of the Palia district of Volos that will serve as the background for the reception of different databases as well as a tool of communication with the citizens of Volos
- Creation of an audiovisual archival material database of the post-war architecture and city in Greece with the objective of developing a codification of descriptive metadata concerning spatial, stylistic and narrative characteristics. In the future, these data could be used by locative media networks.
Towards the study of the city of Volos, Lecad collaborates systematically with the Municipality of Volos in a range of subjects of study of the urban environment and more systematically in the design of the future museum of the city. The two institutions already collaborate in the Thales research program, co-financed by the Hellenic Ministry of Education (ESPA) and the European Union (ESF).
