The Engine Shed: Digital Documentation

SketchFab models and digital documentation resources part of Stirling Science Festival

SketchFab models

Stirling Castle

At the Engine Shed, we use both augmented and virtual reality to help understand the past, and conserve heritage for future generations. Sketchfab is a platform that allows us to publish and share our work, why not have a look at some of our models from Stirling Castle?


Edinburgh Castle

As well as showcasing the finer details of historic places, we also use digital technology to model entire sites. Have a look at our interactive model of Edinburgh Castle? Scientific technology like this can our sites be more accessible to people who might not have had a chance to come visit for themselves!


Short Guide: Applied Digital Documentation in the Historic Environment

This short guide looks at different data capture techniques that can be used in the analysis, recording, conservation and visualisation of historic objects, sites and landscapes in their present condition.
The document includes case studies that outlines the uses and applications of potentially vast, multi-layered datasets. Each section within the guide will present best practices, as well as fundamental principles that will assist those looking to undertake digital documentation.
