3D Digital Documentation of the Giant Cantilever Crane and Kosuge Dock

Mr. Alastair Rawlinson

The choice of Nagasaki as the final Scottish Ten was hugely exciting for me because of the challenges recording such complex industrial heritage sites present, the potential for spectacular results, and because we knew coming to Japan would be thrilling experience for all of the team. We also knew that we would learn a lot both from the survey challenge and from the expertise and experience of our Japanese partners.

For us, the partnership between the Glasgow School of Art and Historic Scotland has been immensely powerful, allowing us to combine very different skills and techniques. Personally, this involved using my visualisation expertise, together with my practical experience of the latest 3D survey equipment and software, to take on what were at times very complex survey challenges. For example, we had to accommodate the fact that the Giant Cantilever Crane was operational, being part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ very active shipyard. We therefore had to improvise, and at one stage combined photogrammetry with our laser scanning activity in what we referred to as ‘Boatagrammetry’.
