The Scottish Built Nagasaki Giant Cantilever Crane is part of the "Scottish Ten Project" which is a collaboration of Historic Scotland experts in 3D visualisation at The Glasgow School and the digital heritage organisation CyArk.  The project has been responsible for the digital imaging for five Scottish Unesco sites and five World sites. 

The Nagasaki Crane (1909), like the Titan Crane in Clydebank is one of 11 cantilever cranes in the world.
