We are a small, women and minority-owned business specializing in the application of emerging technologies as they relate to heritage sites. This includes the use of photogrammetry and 3D modeling to record extant, destroyed, or ruined places. We also utilize game engines (e.g., Unity 3D) to produce immersive and interactive virtual experiences of these places. In addition, we can undertake complex forms of geospatial analysis, to either serve as the background data for our virtual reconstructions, or for a variety of other purposes (e.g., site management, coastal erosion analysis). Our workshops provide a cost-effective method for small groups to learn these technologies, and we’ll come to you! Learn more about these on our Services page.
After experimenting with various pay software, we chose to concentrate on free and open source software (FOSS) for a variety of reasons. These software are free to use, unlike proprietary software which can cost thousands of dollars. This reduces overall costs on our end, allowing us to produce high-quality digital products for local museums and smaller heritage sites. Fortunately, FOSS is scalable and we are ready to tackle big jobs as well. Other benefits of FOSS include increased reliability, stability, and functionality that matches or surpasses comparable proprietary software. FOSS also contributes to the democratization of technology, and makes these tools available to those who could not otherwise afford programs, upgrades, add-ons, and tutorials. When software is accessible and available to all, we feel it empowers people to share their knowledge and creativity more freely.
