Heritage Visualisation & Interpretation

Soluis’s dedicated Museums and Heritage division is a recognised innovator in illustrating and preserving heritage assets, and in enabling access to digital heritage experiences and content for audiences of all kinds.

Our team has amassed 15+ years of experience in presenting heritage architecture, digital preservation, and digital interpretation through CGI and animation. We have developed an informed and nuanced understanding of both our subject matter, and the latest visualisation and digital access methodologies.
As a part of the wider Soluis Group, we also offer an integrated set of skills and expertise, and over 1,500 projects worth of experience in harnessing new virtual and augmented reality technologies to bridge the gap between heritage data and the user. We can create everything from imagery and animation to full, multi-format digital interpretation installations accessed by 1000’s of people.
Our work in this space has seen us collaborate with some of Museums and Heritage’s leading names, and on some lighthouse heritage visualisation projects; including The British Museum, Avanti, NVA, Skara Brae, Bamburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, St Peter’s Seminary, Samsung Digital Discovery Centre, Aberdeen Music Hall, Transport for London, Architecture and Design Scotland, Glasgow Caledonian University and The University of St Andrews.

British Museum Rock Art VR

As part of the African Rock Art Image project (britishmuseum.org/africanrockart) at the British Museum, Soluis Heritage has created a free virtual reality (VR) mobile application, Rock Art VR, which transports users to world-famous rock art site at Game Pass Shelter in South Africa.

The app takes users on a journey through Maloti-Drakensberg National Park, home of the renowned Game Pass Shelter rock art site, flying over mountain ranges and exploring pathways leading to the sites. Using digital imagery, the app uses VR technology optimised for cardboard headsets to allow people to explore the rock art and its surroundings via an immersive 360° tour with embedded audio from the project curator.


Steve Colmer, Director at Soluis Heritage said: “The Digital Activity Day was great to be involved with and I got to see first-hand the reactions to the content we had created. Especially the kids that took to it straight away and were really immersed as they journeyed up the mountain and nervously peered over the edge of the trail down to the valley below.

The team at the British Museum and olleagues at the African Conservation Trust in South Africa were a joy to work with, and we were able to use their endless knowledge of both the site and the artwork to help shape the experience and guide us every step of the way.“


Created as part of a project looking at innovative and exciting ways to connect people with Africa’s rock art, the app was first shown at the Digital Activity Day event in the Great Court in the British Museum. This event gave families the opportunity to try the VR experience, whilst also handling 3D prints and contributing to a paper ‘rock art’ wall.

The Rock Art VR application can be downloaded here on the Apple store, or Google Play store.
