LT – Llwyn Celyn – using digital techniques to create a virtual encounter with the site
11 June - 10:00 - 12 June - 17:00£60
The one day course will be run by Graham Sykes and Henry Flint from AH Scanning, both highly experienced in using laser scanning and 3D technologies, particularly in the field of digital heritage. Kasia Howard, Engagement Manager from the Landmark trust will also input on the restoration of the site, activities and commissioning a digital heritage project.
We will start with a walk and talk around parts of Llwyn Celyn to discuss how we approached the initial building recording touching on the preliminary stages of setting up a recording project and the value of historical research. This will then move on the post restoration documentation using photogrammetry and the latest laser scanning and 360 technology.
We will look at the different levels of recording, national guidance, and the differences in the quality of data and accuracy you can achieve utilising different survey techniques. We will focus upon the tools and techniques available, what their advantages and disadvantages are and how to decide which is most appropriate for individual buildings and project outcomes.
All participants will have the opportunity to try out digital survey techniques, identifying what to capture and the ways in which we could go about it. We will look at what happens to the data that is collected and the process of archaeological interpretation, and discuss the various potential outcomes for a digital heritage project.
The course will start at 10 am, meeting at Llwyn Celyn, and will run until 5pm with a break for lunch. Light refreshments will be provided, but participants are asked to bring their own packed lunch.
