HeritageLaser ScanningBringing Swansea’s copper heritage to life using 3D Reality Capture

An evocative video combining the oral history of one of Wales’ most important industrial sites with a 3D digital model created from laser scan surveys are preserving its heritage for future generations as well as connecting local communities with their past.

TerraDat worked in partnership with Swansea University to produce the video, “Echoes of Copperopolis”, and a 3D digital model of the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks, which was once the crucible of the world’s copper industry.

It was hugely important in the development of Swansea, and Wales, as an industrial powerhouse and the reason that Swansea became known as Copperopolis.

The heritage site is now one of world importance.
