By collecting images of heritage assets from members of the public and processing them to create 3D reconstructed models, the HeritageTogether project has accomplished the digital recording of nearly 80 sites across Wales, UK. A large amount of data has been collected and produced in the form of photographs, 3D models, maps, condition reports and more. Here we discuss some of the different methods used to realise the potential of this data in different formats and for different purposes. The data are explored in both virtual and tangible settings, and -- with the use of a touch table -- a combination of both. We examine some alternative representations of this community-produced heritage data for educational, research and public engagement applications.
