Another reason for our excitement was the fact that our data from these surveys was proving to have immediate benefits for the sites themselves. For example, the 3D recording of Rani ki Vav in India was a valuable asset in supporting its nomination as a World Heritage site, which subsequently proved to be successful. We hoped that the same would be the case in Nagasaki, where there was the added challenge of the nominated industrial heritage still being operational.

Ultimately, July 2015 proved to be a important month for us. We were able to conclude the first, survey phase of the Scottish Ten with the formal gift of the data to our Japanese partners in Nagasaki by Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Fiona Hyslop. However, this was not the end of project for us, and we are continuing to develop apps using the 3D data that we generated. Meanwhile, we were overjoyed a few days later when The Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution was inscribed onto the World Heritage List by UNESCO.
