ACCORD with the Friends of the Glasgow Necropolis

ACCORD was an AHRC funded research project that took place from October 2013 to March 2015 and was a collaboration between the Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art, the University of Manchester, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland and Archaeology Scotland. In the summer of 2014 the ACCORD project worked together with communities across Scotland to co-design and co-produce 3-Dimensional digital models of heritage places and monuments. We explored how forms of community-based social value associated with sites and places can be addressed and transformed through engagement with 3D digital technologies. The project worked together with 10 community groups across Scotland that have ongoing relationships to heritage places.

Full project details including references to methodology are available from the main ACCORD programme pages.

The ACCORD team worked with The Friends of the Glasgow Necropolis on the 5th and 6th of July 2014. Together we 3D recorded and modelled two headstone inscriptions and the portico and interior of the Monteath Mausoleum. We used the technologies of photogrammetry and RTI (Reflectance Transformation Imaging) (for more information on these technologies please see the ACCORD project overview page).
