HeritageTraditional boats and laser scanning

Heritage Talks are presented in partnership with Portaferry & Strangford Trust

Pat Tanner, Director at 3D Scanning Ireland, delivers two related talks. The first is on the 'Traditional Boats of Ireland' project which aims to document and raise awareness of the rich diversity of maritime traditions, many of which are disappearing. Following an interval, the second talk is entitled '3D Documenting and Digital Modelling for the Reconstruction of Boats and Ships'.
