From Rangers House to the River Thames

A digital model of the entire World Heritage Site above and below ground

A very large project founded on a very simple idea – to capture with spatial fidelity in one digital model everything of significance above ground, below ground and underwater between Rangers House and Island Gardens.

That is, to build a digital model of the entire World Heritage Site incorporating the whole Royal Park above ground, the 300 odd tunnels and several reservoirs and conduits below ground, Rangers House, the Observatories, Flamsteed’s Well, Our Ladye Star of the Sea, Queen’s House, the Maritime Museum, the Tilt Yard, Admiral Hardy’s mausoleum above and below ground, the ORNC, St Alfege, St Alfege graveyard, the Tudor palace underground and what little is above ground, Cutty Sark, the foreshore, the Thames bathymetry underwater, the foot tunnel and Island Gardens. A half valley section cutting right through the World Heritage Site uniting every element of the architecture and landscape above and below ground.

The first model of any kind to unite and link every element of the World Heritage Site.

To make a digital model of what Canaletto saw when he painted Greenwich from Island Gardens in 1750.
