CyArk scans historic sites

http://archive.cyark.org/misin-de-n...ores-gallery-3d

I read about this in my local paper and had to go see.

CyArk is out scanning all kinds of historical sites to make sure they are preserved somehow before they are destroyed. Apparently, the founders were inspired to do this after the Taliban destroyed all the Buddhist sites in Afghanistan.

The 3D Viewer shows the point cloud... and somebody (no idea who) has contacted them to find out if offering their scans up in Wavefront OBJ format for those crazy 3D Hobbyists might be possible...

That's a very interesting project. Thanks for posting -- I hadn't heard of it before.

I'm not sure whether it's been posted here before, but the EC funds something similar called Europeana:

Okay, this is amazing. Apparently, the site you reffed has a viewer that reads a Wavefront OBJ and MTL file! That's exciting! I wonder how they feel about people using them...
