The Digital Landscapes exhibition uses interactive technologies such as augmented and virtual reality and photogrammetry, to bring treasures of the National Park to life for visitors, making Northumberland’s wild and beautiful landscapes accessible to all. The exhibition showcases the benefits that new technologies, 3D modelling, drone surveys and digital mapping have had on tourism and leisure and for land management and conservation.
The exhibition is divided into three main sections and explore the concepts of ‘Digital for Adventure’, ‘Digital for Learning’ and ‘Digital for Conservation’. Digital for Adventure will use immersive virtual reality to enable visitors to explore hidden areas of the National Park through newly-commissioned, interactive 360-degree films.
Digital for Learning will use augmented reality and pioneering photogrammetry to create detailed, 3D virtual museum showcasing archaeological finds from within the National Park and artefacts from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. Digital for Conservation will explore how the National Park uses digital technology to aid conservation and showcase how the Park’s own data collection and mapping tools allow the Authority to care for our unique landscape.
