My name is Sofia Antonopoulou, architect by training, with a background in architectural conservation. I’m currently an HLF-funded placement with the Digital Documentation team at Historic Environment Scotland, based in Edinburgh but working all over Scotland. At the moment, I’m exploring the worlds of digital survey and documentation with a parallel interest in Building Information Modelling. My ambition is to combine those interests and work on applying BIM for heritage conservation.
This website and blog are dedicated to documenting my adventures as a member of the Digital Documentation Team at HES. I’m very lucky to work with dedicated, inspiring people on amazing projects ranging from laser scanning of archaeological/historic sites to the documentation of historic artefacts. My work often follows a specific site/building/object from data capture to data processing and all the way to 3D printing. For regular DigiDoc project updates, follow me on Twitter @sofia_antonop.

The Digital Documentation Team has been heavily involved in the ongoing Scottish Ten project, which aims to digitally record all of Scotland’s World Heritage Sites, as well as five international ones. For the full story, visit the official Scottish Ten website.
