Today, the former English mining settlement of Advent City in Adventfjorden, Svalbard, is in ruins. Many of its buildings still exist at nearby Hiorthhamn in their original state.
In summer 2016, a team of archaeologists carried out a high-resolution topographic survey at Advent City as well as detailed photographic recording at Hiorthhamn.
With the funding from the Svalbard Environmental Protection Fund (project ID 16/64), a team of archaeologists, surveyors, and software developers of the eScience-Center at Tübingen Univeristy joined the dots: they made the 3D reconstruction and visualisation of Advent City possible.
The tangible outcome of this project is a fly-though video of Advent City. After more than a century, the video shows the former pre-fabricated houses back again in their original locations.
