CyArk 3D Digital Preservation Update

cyarkFor those who may not be aware of the work that CyArk is doing to preserve cultural heritage sites around the world this article will provide an in-depth look at their extensive and important 3D digital preservation activities.

The non-profit CyArk, an Oakland, California-based organization is on the cutting edge of 3D laser scanning technology and data management.

“Despite the technology being available, there are few groups proactively preserving sites for cultural preservation,” says CyArk Vice President Elizabeth Lee. “One of the things we’re advocating, especially with projects in Iraq, is that things can be done immediately.”

CyArk has captured and preserved dozens of sites, and has already seen its digital preservation work pay off when physical monuments become threatened.
