Virtual local history


3D Talo continues its efforts to bring back the past with means of virtual and augmented reality.

This time we bring you a map of historical Upper Savonia, which showcases the spread of habitation in the region from 16th century to the 20th century.

The map is part of an online portal under development, which when ready pieces together local history of the region in digital form and gives it an extra boost by utilizing virtual reality in full. In addition to now released map we have brought you earlier the Virtual Vieremä in which you can walk the streets of ‘60s Vieremä in virtual reality, or just view the streets and locations in 360 -viewer. Virtual Vieremä was one of the reasons Juha Vidgrén, a local active in Vieremä, was granted the nomination and the prize of Vuoden Kotiseututeko earlier this year.

We would like to thank Juha, Matti Pehkonen, Tapio Toivola, Vieremän Kylänraitti and all of our collaborators in this project, but also everyone interested in local history of the area!
