ChronoPoints | Shadows of Canaveral
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

About This Project

Our first project, Shadows of Canaveral was a 3-dimensional, interactive and immersive journey that utilized the backdrop of Cape Canaveral. Users learned about key moments in the history of the Cape through its launch complexes, assembly areas, launch vehicles, and personnel.  By exploring areas beyond the gates of the Cape, Shadows of Canaveral incorporated the larger historical picture and culture of the era.
