Summary

This project focuses on the 3D recreation of the various stages of the Dyottville Glass Works located between Gunner’s Run and the Delaware River. The Dyottville Glass Works began in the early 19th century and eventually produced a large variety of well-known bottles, flasks and other items that were widely used. Working from a variety of illustrations, photographs and paintings, along with point cloud scans of the original foundations, we have created an interactive platform that lets users track and view the evolution of the factory across its multiple incarnations. We propose a methodology for interactive recreation based on multiple types of data and a foundation for the use of 3D interactive visualization in future archaeological projects; demonstrating a possible method for the preservation, exploration and study of current and future cultural heritage resources.
