Fragmented Heritage Project

The Partners

The project has built mutually beneficial relationships with five partners. The partners will be able to advice on highly specific application areas and techniques will being among the first commercial outlets to benefit from the techniques we develop. We're very happy with our current set of project partners and expect that the number and diversity of these will increase as we gather speed.

Project Partners

The Citizen Science Alliance is a collaboration of scientists, software developers and educators who collectively develop, manage and utilise internet-based citizen science projects in order to further science itself, and the public understanding of both science and of the scientific process. These projects use the time, abilities and energies of a distributed community of citizen scientists who are our collaborators. Working with Christopher Lintot the fragmented heritage project will partner with the CSA to enable the public to take part in exploring the Keynan landscape for the fossils of our ancient ancestors.

The Home Office is a ministerial department of the Government of the United Kingdom, responsible for immigration, security, and law and order. As such it is responsible for the police, UK Border Agency, and the Security Service (MI5). The Centre for Applied Science and Technology, through Hazel Biggs (lead on 'live time forensics') and Sonya Baylis (manager of National Injuries Database), have declared an interest in supporting the project. They can see clear benefits to the use of planned technology in forensic evidence recording and visualisation. The project fits the live time forensics initiative by speeding up processes such as reassembling broken objects from crime scene assemblages.

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is an internationally respected centre of excellence in measurement and materials science. Through Professor Richard Leach (Principal Research Scientist), are happy to support the project. This is primarily in the area of high resolution metrology but extends to all aspects of resource at the NPL including those of the National Measurements Systems.

The National Media Museum (part of the science museum group), through Michael Terwey (Head of Collections and Exhibitions), have pledged to support the project by providing advise and space for an exhibit.
The exhibit is still being planned but will celebrate the technology of the project in the context of the history of imaging and will be a useful venue for engaging with the public on STEM topics and promote the use of citezen science through the use of aerial images.

Historic Scotland is an executive agency of the Scottish Government, responsible for historic monuments in Scotland.
Historic Scotland will, through Dr Lyn Wilson (Scottish Ten Project and 3D Survey Manager), will support the project in an advisory capacity in the areas of 3D digital documentation and with issues with 3D post-processing of sample sets from multiples scales.
