It has been an enjoyable and eventful year for the participants in the CINE See The Past | Imagine The Future project. Locatify has thoroughly enjoyed our involvement and are proud of everyones contribution to the overall progress of the project and specifically the Skriðuklaustur project.
September is an important time in the life of our project – this year we are celebrating our first anniversary. One year of a three year project is over, and it is time to reflect and look forward.
Case Study: Skriðuklaustur
Locatify and partners were tasked with making the heritage network of the 16th-century monastery at Skriðuklaustur in Fljotsdalur Valley, East Iceland more visible.
The monastery ruins were excavated in 2000-2012, revealing the structure and history of an Augustinian hospice. Gunnarsstofnun leads the case study of advance mapping and gamification with help from Locatify and St Andrews University and in collaboration with associated partners, the Wilderness Center, the National Heritage Agency, Fljotsdalshreppur Municipality and Vatnajökull National Park.
Virtual reconstructions of the site and 3D images of the site can be tried with Oculus Rift technology at the cultural center Skriduklaustur. A heritage game has also been created and a demo version can be played on site.
