This is the 2nd Blog in our Historiscope series - leading on from our overview of the project.
In 2020, Pooja Katara, founder of SENSEcity, teamed up with Archaeologist and Heritage Scientist Tiomóid Foley for the 2nd Round of Creative Informatics Challenge Projects. The challenge given by Historic Environment Scotland was to develop a new product that would allow for visitors to engage more directly with a monument from a precise outdoor viewpoint, by delivering a range of content including historical and archaeological reconstructed inaccessible views.
The mission, as we chose to accept it, was basically to reimagine the telescope (not the wheel in this case). With a prime testing ground at the famous Urquhart castle on the Bonnie Banks of Loch Ness. Public disclaimer- we were unable to stretch the historical accuracy to have Nessie in the scene, in this particular instance, sorry to disappoint!
