DIGINEXT was at the head of the V-City project, managing the research, development, and validation of an innovative system integrating the latest advances in Computer Vision, 3D Modeling, and Virtual Reality for the rapid and cost-effective reconstruction, visualisation and exploitation of complete, large-scale and interactive urban environments.The focus of the project on urban environments was not only made possible by the latest technological advances, but also justified. Urban environments represent one of the most important and valuable cultural heritage as acknowledged by the UNESCO.

The top European research teams involved have presented early results from the project at major international conferences such as SIGGRAPH. Based on VirtualGeo, a product from DIGINEXT, this project has been considered by the European Commission, as well as experts in the field, as an innovation of prime importance.
