The Temporal Modelling Research Group was originally based at Liverpool Hope University. It explored the visualisation of historical events including the development of time maps. It was led by Brian Farrimond who has now retired from Hope and is currently Honorary Research Fellow at Edge Hill University where he established the 3D Parametric Modelling Project.
The 3D Parametric Modelling Project at Edge Hill University is developing applications that enable people who have no special skills in 3D modelling to create quickly complex, realistic and dynamic models and visualisations. This work builds on the earlier Church Builder application that enables non-specialist users to create rapidly complex, realistic models of churches.
