The historic environment faces many challenges, one of which is a poor understanding of the positive role it can play in the maintenance, development, and regeneration of communities, their culture, and their economy. Aberdeenshire Council considers that the project holds great potential to develop protocols, as well as actual data and models, which will have long-term value and importance with regards to tourism, heritage interpretation, public engagement, and condition monitoring. The work undertaken in relation to the collection of digital heritage data for the church itself required the research team to fully understand and evaluate the context within which the resultant data will be shown, and the likely uses of them. The most significant outcome from the research has been that of external visibility of the work, and the impact in terms of understanding and engagement with the built heritage.
