  Early development of the EHE

To give a brief taste of some of the work we did, the three images below show parts of the development work. Clicking the image will open up a new window with a full-size version of the picture. We will develop this more fully by the end of the year.

The first shows a whole lot of windows open as we are developing "Encoding Transformations" one of the "tours." We are using the idea of the tour as an overarching metaphor for the EHE. The ET tour gives a chronological narrative of the development of the colliery site in the heritage park.

This shows the first node (in plain text without any glitzy graphics) of the Encoding Transformations tour. It is placed in the middle of the cycle of the tour. The development work was undertaken using Eastgate's StorySpace program.

This shows some early work on the "Representations tour." Although being developed in a textual environment it was eventually turned into a "video-driven" tour.
