Agendas for the 2nd Jordanian workshop and International Stakeholder Workshop


Stakeholders’ engagement and co-creation workshop, Amman, Jordan (February 2020)

The project approach is based on co-creation and is end-users centred. As such, the project implementation has started with a Stakeholders’ engagement and co-creation workshop hosted in Amman on 20th February 2020 by the Jordan Tourist Board. Researchers and experts worked collaboratively to identify challenges and opportunities for the application of Digital Technologies on Heritage Conservation in Jordan. The workshop also helped to refocus the mission for the Center of Excellence (COE), with an emphasis on documentation and knowledge sharing of international best practices on UAH conservation and a call for more clarity on the role that such a COE may play in the actual UAH Jordanian governance system.


3D Laser Scanning of Traditional Architecture in the historic city of As-Salt, Jordan (February 2020)

As a preliminary development of this project, the project team conducted direct field observation and survey on Qaqish house in the city of As-Salt. This survey allowed the team to undergo the process of scanning a heritage site in a historic centre in As-Salt, Jordan. The project used Autodesk Revit for documentation and the researchers obtained laser scan drawings for the house with collaboration with As-Salt municipality. Visualisations can be developed from 3D models such as the case with the laser scans for the Qaqish house which were further developed into a virtual 3D tour.

We invite you to explore the 3D virtual tour of Qaqish House in As-Salt, Jordan developed by our partners SurveyTeq.
