Watson's Mill

Making Dangerous Areas Accessible For All

Showing the still-functioning aspects of Manotick’s flour mill was the main focus of our scan at this Ottawa heritage site. We created a immersive digital experience that allowed areas not normally accessible to the public, available to explore. This includes upper mechanical rooms of the flour mill and its’ cordoned-off water pump area.

The 3D Tour is served online on the museum’s website and in-person on a computer, allowing those with mobility issues the freedom of virtually-visiting upper and lower floors.

Matterport 3D Tour
Using the Matterport Pro2, we scanned the entirety of Watson's Mill. This included areas normally inaccessible to the public, and waist-deep in water from the Ottawa River.
Google Street View
The scan was uploaded to the Google Maps platform as a Google Street View Trusted tour. These 360 images are prioritized by Google and compliments the Watson's Mill Google My Business profile.
4K And Panoramic Images
We produced 4k images and 360 photos of the flour mill, providing them with high-quality content of their space to share online and in future printed materials.
On-Site Delivery
We consulted with the organization to come up with a feasible solution to on-site delivery of the 3D Tour. With costs and intermittent internet being the main issue drivers, we assisted with the procurement of a suitable computer station and wired internet connection to deliver the 3D Tour for accessibility of upper and lower areas on-site.
