Our Explore Your Archives campaign (EYA2020) has gone wholly digital this year, partly because of the current restricted access to our much-loved archives and libraries.

We are taking this opportunity to explore and celebrate our Digital Technologies following our successful Digital Past 2020 Conference (DP2020) on New Technologies in Heritage and Interpretation, and the accompanying exhibition showcased at Aberystwyth University during February 2020.

We thought that this year’s campaign would be the perfect opportunity to share further these stunning and invaluable resources.

The new digital technologies featured will include: 3D Computer Reconstructions & Animations; Laser Scan Surveys & Fly-Throughs; LiDAR Surveys (Light Detection and Ranging); Multi Beam Sonar Data Surveys; UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) Surveys; Photogrammetry; Geophysics; 360 Degree Gigapixel Photography and 360-degree Videos.

The resulting images provide unique and exciting ways of looking at monuments and structures and enabling a greater depth of understanding of our cultural heritage in Wales.

Look out for more news during the week!

This will include our regular Heritage of Wales blog on our website, Facebook, and our Twitter accounts: @RCAHMWales; @RC_Survey; @RC_Archive

Look out for our regular hashtags: #LlunDyddLlun; #MeddwlMawrth; #TechTuesday; #HwylHanes as well as this year’s campaign hashtags: #ExploreYourArchive and #ExploreYourArchiveAtHome.

Plenty of nice examples but no link to the online version!!
I’m particularly interested in Multi Beam Sonar Data Surveys.

Hi Joe, you can view the results of 18 multi beam sonar wreck surveys carried out for the U-boat here and there are records of other surveys here. I hope that helps. Please get in touch with our enquiry service if you’d like to know more, thanks!
