    Google's 3D scans aim to preserve historical sites

    "High resolution 3D scans of more than 25 historical sites from around the world are being released.

    CyArk used cutting edge digital archaeology techniques including laser scanning and drones to capture the images which have been released by the Google Arts and Culture project.

    The project coincides with World Heritage Day on Wednesday 18 April 2018.

    That's absolutely terrific. I only hope they do many more.

    Very exciting, this will be great educational tool.

    I've actually tried out that 3D head set that's in the video before, with a simulation of an underwater cave. It was pretty convincing that I was there.

    The digitization of Ancient Corinth is included in the planet's largest three-dimensional digital archive of endangered monuments to be created by Google Arts & Culture and the non-profit company CyArk.

    It is an initiative – on the occasion of the World Heritage Day celebrated on 18 April – to preserve the world’s civilization.

    Google provides everyone through Google Arts & Culture with digital access to the data base of CyArk data collected around the globe. So everyone can get in touch with the great works of world culture either through Google Arts & Culture’s “Open Heritage” website or through the iOS or Android free app.

    The three-dimensional representation of more than 25 monuments from various parts of the Earth is already available. It has been accomplished with the use of sophisticated digital archeology techniques, such as laser scanners as well as drones.
