The project aims to investigate the feasibility and potential of using landscape holography in cultural heritage. To date, holograms have been used to capture individual artefacts or buildings, but never whole landscapes within this context. This innovative project will carry out a small scale scoping project on Pen-Y-Dinas Hillfort on the Great Orme, Llandudno, to investigate the challenges and possibilities of landscape holography for research, education and possible commercial applications of the technology.
The original research will open up the possibilities of using aerial photography to make large scale landscape holographs for use within the heritage, tourism and other sectors. The applications of this technique will be highlighted for use as a research tool, for heritage tourism, to increase the accessibility of sites both digitally and physically and for use within the commercial sector.
