The HeritageTogether project has developed a web platform through which members of the public can upload their own photographs of heritage assets to be processed into 3D models using an automated Structure-from-Motion work flow. The web platform is part of a larger project which aims to capture, create and archive digital heritage assets in conjunction with local communities in Wales, UK, with a focus on megalithic monuments. The 3D models are displayed online using a lightbox style gallery and a virtual museum, while the large amounts of additional data produced are stored in an online archive. Each representation provides a different perspective and context to the data, allowing users to explore the data in a multitude of ways. HeritageTogether is a digital community and community-built archive and museum of heritage data, developed to inspire local communities to learn more about their heritage and to help to preserve it.
