The Fez Medina is a culturally rich center for artisanal crafts, but there is a lack of documentation of the history here. We worked with Tourat Mdinty to further their goal of preserving the heritage of the Fez Medina by creating a digital preservation map. We collected photos, videos, and interviews around the medina to create an authentic representation of what we witnessed during our time there, capturing both the history of the medina and its state at this moment in time. Our map, which integrates all of this visual media, serves as a tool to experience the Fez Medina without physically being there, but can also serve to improve the tourist experience. Most importantly, our map preserves the culture of the medina in danger of being lost to time.
