The Scottish Ten is a joint project between Historic Scotland, the national heritage agency; The Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio and non-profit organisation CyArk.
From the outset the Scottish Ten has aimed to digitally document Scotland's five UNESCO-inscribed World Heritage Sites and five international heritage sites using cutting-edge laser survey technology. The project marries advanced scientific technologies with heritage conservation.
Staff from both GSA and HS take part in the data acquisition at each site before the data is processed and developed into heritage visualisation tools at The Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio on the banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow. The Historic Scotland team is responsible for any conservation applications derived from the data, such as CAD drawings or condition monitoring tools.
Groups interested in the protection, preservation and access to the monuments have been approached to help the Scottish Ten team to prepare for the fieldwork and overcome potential obstacles and providing invaluable local knowledge. This expertise and the management needs of the people who look after these incredible sites also helps to identify what type of data development will have the greatest benefit in its long term preservation and presentation.
