The Scottish Ten

Cutting-edge digital technologies meet heritage conservation in the Scottish Ten project, creating 3D models of 10 international heritage sites.

The Scottish Ten

The project set out in late 2009 to digitally document Scotland’s then five World Heritage Sites and a further five international heritage sites to create accurate 3D data to help with their conservation and management, their interpretation and virtual access.

It was a collaborative project between Historic Environment Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art’s School of Simulation and Visualisation, with CyArk.

About the Scottish Ten

Digital Technologies

Each of the Scottish Ten sites raised its own particular digital documentation challenges, and a wide range of technologies was used to accurately capture data.
