Over the years we have created many interactive simulations of historic and archaeological sites, from the Waterloo Battlefield to restored Monasteries. Using ancient maps, LiDAR, photography, 3D scanning of discoveries and working with expert interpreters to find the best method for cataloguing and communicating the history and relevance of the site to the public.
Typically we create an interactive model that can be viewed over-time from any point of view. Various layers of data can be switched on/off to aid understanding. The whole environment can then be viewed over the internet or on an interactive displays. We also support launch events with mobile interactive screens.
Reconstruction of Stanley Bank Slitting Mill & Corn Mill
The archaeological work in the project was run by the National Museums Liverpool Field Archaeology Unit along side St Helens Borough Council, as part of a Community Archaeological Project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The University of Salford and FusionGFX were involved in interpreting the archaeological work to produce a 3D model of what the site may have looked like at different times during its history to help visitors to understand the site’s past.
