Co. Kildare Heritage in 3D

In recent years the technologies available to document objects, monuments, buildings, and landscapes in three-dimensions, have improved in accuracy and become more affordable. As a result, three-dimensional representations of heritage objects and monuments are fast becoming ubiquitous in heritage interpretation and dissemination.

County Kildare Federation of Local History Groups have added a K3D section to their website to bring together in one place a selection of 3D models of Co. Kildare heritage objects and monuments.

These models were created by a number of heritage bodies, archaeologists, and enthusiasts who have uploaded their work to the 3D model sharing platform

The heritage models featured include well known monuments such as Co. Kildare’s famous Moone and Castledermot high crosses. In addition, lesser known and publicly inaccessible monuments are also featured, such as the Furness Longstone and Oughterard Tower House. A number of archaeological digs captured using photogrammetry are included in the collection, along with objects held by the National Museum of Ireland that have a County Kildare connection, which have been documented in 3D and uploaded to Sketchfab.
