Mapping History is working on a new animation film, commissioned by Museum Vlaardingen. The museum will open a brand new museum presentation on 20 June 2015 on the history of Vlaardingen, that will tell the story of the city, starting around 8000 years ago. The digital map Mapping History is preparing will be on show in the new presentation and will help to understand how the city has developed over the centuries.
Slot Zuylen Castle
Commissioned by Slot Zuylen Castle Mapping History has made a growth map of ‘The Land of Zuylen’. Slot Zuylen Castle is situated on the river Vecht, near the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
This digital historical map, part of a special website and interactive museum presentation, shows how Slot Zuylen Castle once was surrounded by a wide landscape and how this landscape has been changed drastically over the ages.
Apart from a website and a touchscreen presentation, Mapping History has made an animation film showing in 3D how Slot Zuylen Castle in the 18th century was converted from a 16th century castle into a country mansion.
The animation film and the website are both on show at Slot Zuylen Castle.
