Mapping the dead

为海格特公墓绘制电子地图

Resting place to hundreds of historical figures, Highgate Cemetery is known all over the world-but not everyone here is famous.

这里是数百位汗青人物的安眠地,海格特公墓世界有名,但其实不是安葬在这里的人都是名人。

Amongst this growing sea of ivy are thousands of headstones-some that haven't been seen in years. For many, this is what makes Highgate beautiful. But finding relatives' graves here can be tricky.

在这片长得愈来愈茂盛的常春藤傍边,有不计其数的墓碑,有些墓碑多年都未显现。对很多人来讲,这就是海格特公墓的美丽的地方。然则在这里找亲人的坟墓可不轻易。

Well, today some of them are being rediscovered through a process of careful clearing, which tries to keep the character of the cemetery. The ivy has been removed from some of these headstones-not only to protect them from decay-but also to allow them to be mapped digitally for the first time.

明天,在试图保持坟场特点的基本上,经过过程卖力细心的清理后,一些墓碑重新显现。这些墓碑上的常春藤曾经被清除,这不只是为了保护它们免受腐化,也是为了让它们可以或许初次被绘制在电子地图上。

This is Pete. His backpack uses lasers, which can't be seen, to take three hundred thousand measurements a second. It also has five cameras taking pictures constantly. The information is uploaded online, and eventually a digital map comes to life.

这是皮特。他的背包应用激光,这是看不到的,每秒丈量30万次。背包里还有五个摄像头在一向地摄影。这些信息会被上传到网上,终究一张电子地图就生成了。

Highgate is, as you can see, is a pretty tough location. From a mapping perspective, vegetation can be our biggest nightmare. There are paths-but there are also areas that are very difficult to access-so we have to be very careful from a health and safety perspective.

“海格特公墓,正如你所看到的,是一个异常难丈量的地点。从绘制地图的角度来讲,植被是我们最怕碰到的器械。固然这里有一些巷子,但也有一些区域很难进入,所以从安康和安然的角度来讲,我们必须异常当心。”

Over the last year, Tim and his team have now mapped more than half the cemetery. And already-the new system is helping.

客岁,蒂姆和他的团队曾经把逾越一半的坟场绘制进了电子地图。这个新地图曾经开端起感化了。

It's wonderful that new technology can enable us to do this in a way that just isn't possible with old paper records.

“令人赞赏的是,新技巧可使我们做到这一点,而这是旧的纸质记录没法做到的。”

Over the next year-there will be more mapping and only the most essential plant clearing, meaning more of this incredible part of London is accessible for generations to come.

在接上去的一年里,绘制地图的任务仍将持续,只要必须要清理的植物才会被清除,这意味着伦敦这片美丽的区域将会有更多的处所可供先人应用。
