Chris Fisher, along with Steve Elkins – UTL, Juan Carlos Fernandez – NCALM, and Virgilio Paredes Trapero – Director of IHAH, will be speaking on October 20-22 at the Tower of London on results and implications from the Mosquitia Honduras project. At this event CyArk will formally launch the CyArk 500 Challenge to digitally preserve 500 cultural heritage sites within the next five years. As part of their long-standing mission CyArk hopes to save these cultural heritage sites digitally before more are ravaged by war, terrorism, arson, urban sprawl, climate change, earthquakes, floods, and other threats. There isn’t enough money or enough time to physically save every site, but CyArk wants to use 3D technology to digitally save these sites to make them available for generations to come.
Should be a great venue to showcase our LiDAR efforts
