Making our ancient world heritage come to life
Schokland has been inhabited for thousands of years and has become a Dutch icon for the battle against the water. However, the current landscape only offers a faint glimpse of that past. How can we bring science to the public, easily and intuitively?
The Mixed Reality app has been designed to bring the past to life, as realistically as possible. Based on interdisciplinary scientific data, this app enables users to experience the past character of the island and to see how it developed from 1300 onwards.
By taking users back to different periods of the island’s history, the app is a great tool for visualising scientific data and raising awareness and enthusiasm for landscape history. It offers a tangible, engaging reconstruction of our past, which helps us to understand our present and plan for the future.
