Gujarat’s ‘Rani ki Vav’ to be replicated digitally in UK
Gujarat’s famous archeological monument “Rani ki Vav (The Queen’s Stepwell)” is among five international heritage sites to be recreated digitally using latest technology in Scotland, UK. The Scottish Ten — an ambitious five-year-project aims to create accurate digital models of Scotland’s five Unesco-designated World Heritage Sites and five international heritage sites in order to help in conservation and management of these sites.
The digital models will help conserve significant historical sites for the benefit of future generations and provide 3D digital models and data to site staff to better preserve these sites. The laser scanning measurements will enable identification of problems and rate of decay of the monuments which can then be addressed quickly. Scotland hopes that digitally documenting stepwell would bring the site to a much wider audience and enhance both its national and international profile.
