Researchers designing and deploying technologies in the wild can find it difficult to balance pure innovation with scalable solutions. Tensions often relate to expectations around current and future roles of the technology development. We propose a catwalk technology metaphor where researchers as boundary creatures focus on innovation whilst providing links(More)

1. Introduction This paper presents a methodology for the use of 3D modelling and landscape visualisation in the context of real world experience through fieldwork. The techniques aim to engage student groups in certain technical debates concerning the nature and use of digital surface models, photography and digital reconstructions of glacial landscapes.

The following paper outlines the methodology and preliminary results for an experiment designed to understand the accuracy of visibility models when used in the field by a mobile media consumption app called Zapp. Levels of accuracy are determined in relation to points of interest that can be seen from random sites within the University of Nottingham's(More)
There is a growing availability of data from airborne laser ranging (LiDAR) as the potential use of these systems is more fully exploited and appropriate applications are discovered. The basic product from LiDAR is a digital surface model (DSM), the surface being defined by the point of reflectance of the laser beam. DSMs have been a standard product from(More)
The Mapping the Moment: Performance Culture in Nottingham, 1857–67 project (http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/mapmoment) is an interdiscipli-nary collaboration between performance history and geography, which has as its aim the investigation of the complex connections between the different kinds and sites of entertainment, and between the people and communities(More)
